The Nyack Tree Committee organizes efforts to preserve and augment Nyack’s village forest through careful planning, planting and maintenance.
The Village of Nyack has been a Tree City USA since 2015.
The Tree Committee organizes the Nyack Tree Project, the village’s community planting and stewardship program. Twice a year, volunteers of all ages plant trees on public property and eligible private properties through the Free Front Yard Tree Program. Nyack Rotary Club and Nyack High School students from the Environmental Club, Interact Club and AP Environmental Science are frequent volunteers. The public is encouraged to participate and can get involved by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information about the Free Front Yard Tree program can be found here.
Through the Committee’s efforts the Village was awarded a $10,000 grant from the NYS Urban Forestry Council for a professional inventory of all the public trees and planting sites in the Village in 2014, and a $50,000 grant for tree maintenance in 2019.
Support for the Nyack Tree Project comes from public and private funding. See the Nyack Park Conservancy for more information.
