How it Worked

  • Participants had to pledge to plant a tree
  • Participants had to  follow us on at least one of our social media platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter

Additional Information

We recommended planting a Native Tree. Long Island natives naturally thrive in the region’s conditions, requiring less money, and maintenance than non-native species. Natives also reconnect your landscape with the surrounding ecosystem, providing food and shelter for birds and wildlife. Check out this approved list for your next planting.
