Become a Citizen Pruner
Stewardship and pruning hugely reduce a tree's vulnerability to common urban threats such as pedestrian and vehicular traffic, drought and storms. In New York City, where there is limited funding for tree maintenance but significant need, Citizen Pruners provides a great asset to our urban environment. Join fellow nature lovers and urbanists to become licensed to take care of NYC's street trees. The 12-hour Citizen Pruner Course consists of 5 sessions – 4 in the classroom and 1 field outing. Green-Wood's own neighborhood, Sunset Park, is one of the fastest growing and most diverse neighborhoods in all of New York City. Yet, it also faces serious environmental challenges. Car and truck exhaust from the Gowanus Expressway and industrial emissions from its small manufacturers create higher than average levels of harmful air pollution. Street trees to the rescue! They're nature's miracle workers: they intercept and absorb storm water runoff, provide oxygen, fight climate change, and lower air temperatures.
