The fourth annual Million Trees New York City tree planting party takes place this weekend in Forest Hills, Queens, to replant McDonald Park, an area that was torn up by the tornadoes that ripped through The Big Apple last September, uprooting more than 3,000 trees and damaging cars and the roofs of homes. You can help, and you don’t need a green thumb. Just a passion for The Big Apple. The tree planting program is sponsored by the New York Restoration Project and its Million Trees NYC initiative, in partnership with JetBlue Airways, as part of the airline’s One Thing That’s Green program. If you are interested in helping plant trees on Saturday, April 9th, you must register. Click here to register. The program is 9 a.m. to 2:30, and volunteers will be given both breakfast and lunch.
Thanks to JetBlue. Thanks to the New York Restoration Project, which intends to plant one million new trees throughout the five boroughs by 2017.
