Far too many blocks in Bedford Stuyvesant are tree-less
Thursday, December 20, 2012
In an effort to get more trees planted in the community, Bed Stuy Restoration Corporation partnered with MillionTreesNYC to see how we could work together to help fulfill MillionTrees’ mission to plant and care for one million new trees across the City's five boroughs over the next decade, while greening Bedford Stuyvesant. On October 27th, Restoration hosted its 5th Free Tree Giveaway, in collaboration with New York Restoration Project and the Coalition for the Improvement of Bedford Stuyvesant. One hundred free trees were distributed at the event, and about 50 of those trees found homes with Bed Stuy residents. Restoration will continue to partner with Million Tree’s NYC to green the community.
