Go Green, Get Free Trees, This Sat & Sun on Fulton

City Council Member Letitia James wants you to know a green tree can be yours to grow in Brooklyn, for free!


From their press release:
Green Fort Greene & Clinton Hill and the FAB Alliance in partnership with the New York Restoration Project and MillionTreesNYC and through the generous support of Bloomberg Philanthropies and David Rockefeller present...


Come to Fulton St and Grand Ave in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn on Saturday and Sunday, April 17-18, from 10AM-3PM and leave with a FREE TREE!

Trees will be available to individuals, families and community groups for planting on private property only. First come, first served. If you need it, we will provide advice, lend a shovel, help you bring home a tree, or help you plant. Small decorative flowering trees will be available - perfect for front and rear yards!

For more info, contact Jed Marcus at

To volunteer, contact Marilyn at

You know, I wrote this entire post with a pure heart and clean mind, then I realized where the trees are being distributed and thought, "this ain't the first time you could pickup some trees there."

Yeh I'm crude, happily so.

  1. All Sold Out - No Trees Sunday.

    The turnout Saturday was overwhelming, so instead having of a two-day event on Fulton Street at the Putnam Triangle, all 200 trees were gone in less than 2 hours! Apparently, a lot of you agree that TREES ARE FAB.

    For a schedule of other tree-giveaways, see the "Community Calendar" at

    If so, send a photo of you and your tree to:

    Thanks to all who came out Saturday... see you soon again on Fulton Street in Clinton Hill and Fort Greene!
