Area residents can get free trees for their yards May 11 in Forest Hills.
Part of the MillionTreesNYC initiative, the event is a joint venture between GreenStar Hub, a marketplace for sustainable goods and services, and the nonprofit New York Restoration Project.
“GSH and our network of local businesses are excited to partner with NYRP on its mission to engage NYC citizens and businesses to achieve NYC’s green goals,” Tam Phung, CEO of GreenStar Hub, said in an announcement. “The MillionTreesNYC giveaway program is a great model and an example of how sponsors, tree recipients and NYRP are working together towards a common goal.”
It is best to register for a tree ahead of time online at nyrp.org/treegiveaways.
The event will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the corner of 108th Street and Jewel Avenue.
“We’re very grateful to be working with so many local organizations like GreenStar Hub, that recognize the importance of expanding NYC’s green canopy,” said Mike Duran-Mitchell, NYRP’s director of giveaways.
