Day 90: Request a Tree

click to enlarge

New York actually has an online form that you can fill out to request a tree on your street. It is part of their million trees nyc plan and you can learn more about how to "Request a Tree Street" here.

FYI, there is this caveat:
"Trees are planted on a first-come, first-serve basis. As the availability of trees, number of requests, and length of planting season is different each planting season, not all requests can be filled immediately. There may be up to one year's wait before a request is fulfilled. Please be aware that obstacles such as underground utilities, low wires, building entrances, and light posts may prevent a new tree from being planted."

See some newly planted NYC trees on the Myrtle Minutes blog.
