Jackson Heights is about to get greener.
The giveaway will be located at the JH SCRAPS compost site on the corner of 69th Street and 35th Avenue, and will run from 10 a.m. to noon.
Even though the online registration for the event is already closed, there are still more trees available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a limit of one tree per address.
When picking up the tree, participants must agree to plant the tree in one of the five boroughs, keep the tree properly watered and maintained, and to not place it along streets or city parks, or on terraces, balconies or roofs.
The NYRP and the Jackson Heights Beautification Group will also conduct follow-ups on the trees given away.
A list of trees that will be available during the first hour of the event, such as Cornelian Cherry Dogwood and Serviceberry, can be found here.
