Update: Join us on August 7st, 4-7pm for our first official mapping event! RSVP here after completing a quick online form that takes 5 to 10 minutes. The meeting place is Woodward Av & Suydam Av Queens 11222, just over the border from Brooklyn. This is a short walk from the Jefferson Av “L” train station.
TreesCount is the street tree census run by NYC Parks department. The census happens every 10 years and depends on New York City residents to count and catalogue the more than half a million NYC trees scattered throughout the five borrows.
Join NCA and the NYC Parks department in our effort to map and catalogue every street tree on every block in New York City! As part of this effort, NCA has adopted a portion of the Ridgewood/Bushwick area (as shown in dark green on the map above). Please RSVP on the TreesCount website
Arrive ready to count some trees! This is a free event, with wheels and tablets provided, but this is a dedicated mapping event. You will need your census gear pack and voluntreer badge that you received from your training event. You will be signing in with your user name and password, so please have that readily available.
N.B. If you have not attended a training event, don’t sweat it. We will get you trained before putting you out in the field. You may also attend an official training event hosted by another organization. You can find other events here, and you may RSVP to them once you have completed the quick online form and made an account.
