Love Your Street Trees!

A jillion years ago I actually planted a little Ginko Tree in an abandoned tree pit in front of my apartment. (See my husband and said tree.) Sadly the highly evil landlord removed it (ew!) after we moved and put in some dumb ugly plant. If you would like to save your trees from a similar fate, learn how thanks to Astoria's Build It Green!

Here's the deets:

March 6, 2010: Street Tree Guard Clinic

Build it Green hosts Green Shores NYC and Brooklyn Shade for a Free Workshop on Tree Care

Learn how to care for your local street trees! Get hands-on instruction in how to design and build a low cost tree guard to protect the street trees in your neighborhood and receive tips on requesting and caring for a new tree. The event is free and no prior experience is needed. However, space is limited and reservations are required. To RSVP, email greenshoresnyc at and include “tree guard clinic” in the subject line. All students will have the opportunity to measure, cut and assemble the guard under the supervision of the clinic instructors.
