Overview

No votes yet

Trees Not Trash is a neighborhood beautification project based in Bushwick, a once largely industrial area of Brooklyn that is becoming increasingly residential. Our mission is to transform this neighborhood into a community with green space, where people can take pride in their streets. Trees clean the air, provide shade for people and animals, and create a sense of well-being.

Since its inception, Trees Not Trash has been collecting signatures to have free street trees planted by the NYC Parks Department. Our efforts are paying off! So far, we’ve had 100 new trees planted in our neighborhood, and we look forward to having many more!

We are thankful to Citizens for NYC for their generous support, as well as Olympus Gardens for their guidance, the New York Parks Department for their help, and all the other community gardeners in the New York area who are working hard to make our neighborhoods as green as they can be.
