Did you know trees have millions of years' experience in sequestering carbon? Trees, like other green plants, use photosynthesis to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into sugar, cellulose and other carbon-containing carbohydrates that they use for food and growth.
Join us in partnership with NYC Parks to care for these beautiful God-given trees on June 23 in Central Harlem at W 133rd Street and Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd.
Street Tree Care: Volunteers would meet at a designated park or street intersection in a priority area for street tree care. Volunteers will learn how to aerate, cultivate, mulch, and identify street trees. They will also learn about the important roles street trees play in New York City.
"When you lay siege to a city for a long time, fighting against it to capture it, do not destroy its trees by putting an ax to them, because you can eat their fruit. Do not cut them down. Are the trees people, that you should besiege them?" Deuteronomy 20:19
"Isaiah 55:12: You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
