The City of New York Parks & Recreation’s (Parks) Natural Resources Group (NRG) is leading a large scale, citywide reforestation effort as part of the MillionTreesNYC goal to plant 450,000 trees in parks across the city. The reforestation monitoring study was developed as one tool to test the success of the reforestation efforts. This study addresses the basic survivability and health of the trees since planting began in the fall of 2007. This study captured the container trees planted by In house staff, volunteer groups, and contractors.
