Join Us in Celebrating Earth Week: Register for a Free Tree for Your Child! This spring, we are thrilled to announce our participation in Neighborhood Forest’s 15th Annual Free Tree Program as part of our Earth Week celebrations from April 22nd to 26th!
We are excited to be participating in this wonderful program that teaches youth about the importance of environmental stewardship through the magic and wonder of planting and watching trees grow.
Please fill out the following online registration form by March 15th and receive a free tree (6-12 inches in size) during Earth Week (April 22-26). The tree species will be announced in early April. Neighborhood Forest aims to provide native trees in all regions they serve.
Trees will be delivered to us at the Staatsburg Library and we will arrange to get the trees in the hands of your children on or around Earth Day (April 22nd).
Register to receive a free tree for Earth Day to plant with your child:
Instructions on planting and caring for the trees, along with species details, will be emailed a few days before the tree delivery and will also be accessible in the “Resources” section on the Neighborhood Forest website. For further questions, please check out the Parent FAQs.
You will also have the option to donate and / or purchase additional trees and tree-related educational products (via the registration form). Please note this is optional and any purchases/donations will help fund more free trees for kids in the program. Other products that are purchased by you will be fulfilled by Neighborhood Forest.
Since 2010, Neighborhood Forest has engaged over 1,500 institutions, reached over 500,000 families and planted over 130,000 (mostly urban and residential) trees through the hands of children and parents across North America.
