Urban Forestry at Climate Week in New York City | One Tree Planted
From reducing urban heat, to increasing access to urban green spaces, to protecting clean air & water, trees in cities provide countless benefits for local communities. Unfortunately, urban trees are not distributed equally and many communities need trees now more than ever. One Tree Planted’s Urban Forestry program is working hard to bridge that gap with high-impact urban tree planting projects.
Increasing tree canopy in under-resourced neighborhoods ensures that everyone has equitable access to the critical ecosystem services and recreational opportunities that trees provide. Our Urban Tree Notes series is our way of bringing you along with us as we travel to cities around the world to get our hands in the dirt and plant urban trees.

Urban Tree Notes: Episode #2 — Urban Forestry at Climate Week in New York City finds us at Hudson River Park on the west side of Manhattan during Climate Week NYC. On a sunny September morning, we gathered together with our partner Kyndryl and the Hudson River Park Friends horticulture staff to plant trees in the Tribeca section of Hudson River Park. Together, we cleared weeds and debris, removed dead trees and prepared the planting areas, planted Pine and Dogwood trees, staked and mulched as needed, and watered the trees.
One of the most heavily utilized areas of Hudson River Park, the Tribeca section houses tennis and basketball courts, has a beautiful promenade and boardwalk, and many lawns used for sunbathing, picnicking, and more. Planting trees, particularly replacing the dead trees, helped to enhance the rich benefits provided by this section of the park.
One Tree Planted is proud to have planted trees for the benefit of this important community resource that is enjoyed by millions of New Yorkers every year.
