"My experience with TreesCount was amazing, I never thought about trees ever. Spending the last year documenting trees provided me with a new found appreciation of not only the trees but how they impact our everyday life. It has prompted me into further exploring other programs that address the impact of trees in an urban environment."

Our hard-working street trees are in constant service to the people of New York City. They absorb gaseous air pollutants, provide cooling summer shade, and offer pastoral natural beauty amid the concrete jungle. By surveying street trees, we can collect baseline data on the state of a population in order to track changes in this population in the future.Check out how far we've come
