Sign Up And Get A Tree

On Sunday, March 16th, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance (RWA) is hosting a spring tree giveaway with the New York Restoration Project.

Trees must be reserved in advance by going to www.treegiveaways.com/rwa.

Limited quantities will be available for walk-ups on a first-come first-served basis at the event which will take place at 5803 Rockaway Beach Boulevard.

The giveaway will occur at the RWA’s Firehouse 59 Rockaway Hip Hop Garden, located on the corner of Rockaway Beach Boulevard and Beach 58th Street.

All trees given away are free, but they must be planted on private properties in NYC only.

Salt tolerant tree species available at the giveaway will include sweetbay magnolia, serviceberry, hackberry or black walnut.

Sunday’s event is a part of MillionTrees NYC Initiative's goal to plant over one million trees in the city's five boroughs.

Lead sponsors of the project include Million Trees NYC, Toyota, PlaNYC, NYRP and NYC Department of Parks & Recreation
