On September 2nd, 2014, the Human Impacts Institute finished this seasons Tree Care Tuesday on the corner of Keap and S. 3rd street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. With a great turnout of neighbors and students from Stuyvesant high school, the final Tuesday was a great success!
Over the course of this year’s Tree Care Tuesday several areas around the Williamsburg area were cared for, and the Human Impacts Institute was able to care for an impressive amount of trees, over 350! We are so thankful for all of the great volunteers that joined us over the four months of Tree Cares, as it would not have been possible without them.
Caring for trees in urban areas is important for many reasons:
-Trees provide oxygen
-Trees cool the streets and the city as a whole
-Trees conserve energy
-Trees save water
Join us in 2015 for the next season of Tree Care Tuesday so we can continue to help our great borough (and city) thrive!
