50 New Trees Coming To 4th Avenue


Future Tree Pits on 4th Avenue

It looks like parts of 4th Avenue are about to get a lot greener — but not until this snow gets out of the way, of course.

Pre-snow, we spotted some markings for tree pits on the sidewalks of 4th Avenue around Degraw and Sackett, and checked in with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, who tells us that they’ll be putting in 50 trees along the avenue.

“If the weather permits, they will be planted in the next few weeks,” says Parks spokesperson Meghan Lalor. “We are also planning to install guards around the newly planted trees in the spring.”

Want to make sure those trees survive? Consider adopting one and caring for it, or becoming a TreeLC Care Captain and leading neighbors on your block to care for 10 trees. Everyone who walks down 4th Avenue under the hot summer sun will appreciate it!

  1. So excited about new trees on 4th Ave! Would like to add that this is in no small part due to the tree care stewardship and advocacy from Forth on Fourth Ave (a Committee of the Park Slope Civic Council). We would love help taking care of the new trees and existing ones. Sign up through MillionTrees or email us to join our hardy team: fofa [at] parkslopeciviccouncil [dot] org

  2. And props to the Borough President’s office for their responsiveness to FOFA requests for tree guards on 4th Ave.
