Hello and welcome. Before creating any misconceptions, let me say up front that we're going to be posting irregularly: anywhere from a couple of times a week to once every two months. Quality over quantity!Even better, they're tree huggers:
- Reading this blog
Since our block—and areas south and east of us—could use more trees, I passed info out to my neighbors on how to request a free tree in front of their houses. I made about 70 copies of the documents below and folded them into a flyer, which I placed in mailboxes of homes without trees on Fenimore, Hawthorne, Winthrop, and Parkside blocks from Flatbush to Nostrand Avenues.Sweet!
- Getting more trees on your block
Note that, in addition to submitting the paper form, you can request a street tree online. You can request a free street tree, or you can plant your own. Tree planting season runs another month, until about December 15. After that, Spring will be the next opportunity for planting. For more information, see Request a Street Tree on the Parks Web site.
