The New York Restoration Project will host its first of this year's four tree giveaways on Staten Island as part of their MillionTreesNYC project at the Conference House Park.
To receive a tree, property owners can register in advance, typically two weeks before the event. If registration is full, a limited quantity of trees will be given out on a first-come first-served basis.
A NYRP representative at the event will give tips on how to plant and care for the tree.
The NYRP requires the owner to promise to plant the tree in one of the five boroughs, keep it properly watered and maintained, and to not plant them along streets, in city parks, in containers, terraces, balconies or roofs before they receive their tree.
This giveaway is hosted in partnership with the Conference Houses and the Tottenville Civic Association.
