Habitat & Biodiversity
We work closely with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, an important stakeholder, to protect city trees and enhance parklands. In 2016, we did restoration plantings at two Manhattan parks. We understand that trees are a vital part of New York City’s infrastructure. Trees contribute to clean air and water, reduce energy costs, increase property values, and make streets and parks more beautiful. We employ best management practices whenever we work near trees. If a tree is removed because of infrastructure repairs and upgrades, then restitution fees are used to plant a replacement tree.
