MillionTreesNYC is giving away a gift card to home depot and an official NYC Parks tree bed plaque to the tree steward who pimps out their tree bed. It is easy to enter, just upload a photo of your tricked out tree bed to their facebook page. The deadline is August 3rd, 2012.
Trees on your block are simple to care for: water them, pull up weeds, don’t let’s dogs pee on them, mulch them and don’t build a big box around them or cover the tree pit with bricks, otherwise it suffocates the roots and prevents rainwater from getting in.
Take it to the next level and Adopt a NYC Tree. Here is more information on how to care for your tree. Watch our Trees rule!  video to learn about trees in Greenpoint.

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!
