You can follow the process on the app after you are assigned a service number.

Also, when I see a good spot for a new tree, I also submit the location for consideration. Iíve probably gotten hundreds of trees planted this way. Itís really made my neighborhood nicer.
I had no idea this was an option--thanks!

100% agreed. Queens has so many tree-lined streets, it's not even funny. Makes for a more beautiful borough overall.

The Bronx and many parts of Brooklyn could definitely use some of this beautifying in certain parts. Pelham Parkway in particular is one of my favorite stretches of road simply due to all of the foliage!

No problem. Spread the word! You can even take a photo of the dead tree or empty plot and write details like “This tree is dead and looks like it was hit by a car. Please remove.” and then follow up after it’s removed with something like, “dead tree was removed and now needs to be replaced! Thanks”.

Just a tip, the app has GPS to find your location when requesting a tree. Double check the address because sometimes it is off and when they send an inspector they will close the ticket with “tree already planted” or “tree alive”. Then you have to start all over.

The more trees and green, the better. Its great we have lots of tree lined streets, parks and green spaces. Quiet spots like the latter save many NYorker's sanity on a daily basis. Lots of quiet spots there to sip a nice cold tall boy in peace too. During warm weather months thats a real treat!
