Greening Greenpoint began its four-year project in the Fall of 2015. Sadly, the project ended at the end of June 2019, but happily it exceeded many of its goals. For instance it planted 635 trees, and the original goal was 500 trees. The project also gave hundreds of trees away to property owners, expanded 675 tree beds, trained and equipped tree stewards, and much more.
The final tree planted has a prime view in Transmitter Park of the East River and Manhattan skyline. You can locate this young white swamp oak by the plaque that is next to it commemorating its status.
