MEMBERSHIP DRIVES OUR TREE CARE IMPACT

The NYC Parks & Recreation Department (NYCPR) removes a tree when there is a risk that it might fall onto pedestrians or vehicular traffic.  While we coordinate with NYCPR, ongoing care for 40+ municipal trees and plantings is at the heart of what we do to make our block safe and beautiful,  W9BA Annual Membership levels are $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, and $5,000 (Legacy). You can also donate one-time, end-of-year or recurring  tax-deductible contributions for Planting (tree-surrounds)  & Beautification.  Employee Engagement and Workplace Matching Gifts are encouraged and welcomed!
