Join us on Saturday, October 15, 2022 to learn, care for, and celebrate the NYC urban forest at City of Forest Day!
Did you know that New York City is home to more than 7 million trees, hundreds of acres of woodlands, and miles of trails? A healthy urban forest is essential for a healthy city—providing critical habitat for wildlife, cleaning our air and water, cooling our neighborhoods, and improving our health and wellbeing.
Presented by Forest for All NYC in partnership with the Parks and Open Space Partners – NYC Coalition and NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, City of Forest Day is a day of activities across the city to raise awareness of the importance of the New York City urban forest, and the essential role New Yorkers play every day in caring for the “lungs” of our city.
Details for selected events can be found on the individual event pages. Find tips on how to care for the urban forest every day at the bottom of this page.
