“Trees for Bees” forage-planting event to take place October 27th

Million Trees is organizing a “Trees for Bees” forage-planting event to take place October 27th at historic Floyd Bennett field from 9 a.m.- 1.p.m. You must register in advance. The purpose of the planting is to promote critical plantlife resources to encourage healthy bee populations for pollination and honey production. Planting supplies, a lunch, a honey-tasting, and a guided hike will all be provided by Million Trees.

MillionTreesNYC, one of the 132 PlaNYC initiatives, is a citywide, public-private program with an ambitious goal: to plant and care for one million new trees across the City's five boroughs over the next decade. By planting one million trees, New York City can increase its urban forest—our most valuable environmental asset made up of street trees, park trees, and trees on public, private and commercial land—by an astounding 20%, while achieving the many quality-of-life benefits that come with planting trees.

The City of New York will plant 70% of trees in parks and other public spaces. The other 30% will come from private organizations, homeowners, and community organizations.
