Keeping NY City Streets Green

What's New

The sun is shining again in New York City and community environmental group, GreenShores NYC took advantage by hosting a tree guard clinic in Astoria at the Build It Green! NYC warehouse.

By far this was our most elaborate clinic yet. GreenShores NYC provided compost, mulch, a projector, refreshments, and expertise that created enthusiasm among more than 25 Queens residents in attendance.

There are some fantastic and vibrant trees on the streets adjacent to the waterfront in Astoria. We were able to dress a London Plane tree a few blocks down from the BIG!NYC offices.

BrooklynShade hopes this is the first of many collaborative efforts with GreenShores NYC. Our staff had a great time a looks forward to seeing wooden guards spring up all over Queens.
