This from the BHA:
Every 4 or 5 years, the Brooklyn Heights Association organizes a tree survey in preparation for pruning and planting where it’s most needed in the neighborhood. Funds that have been donated by BHA members and earmarked for tree care are then used to hire a certified arborist. The trees and tree beds most needing attention will be triaged and taken care of as funds permit.
We will meet for a brief orientation at the beginning of the shift you choose. T-shirts, clip-boards, a map, and tree survey forms will be handed out. The volunteers will break into pairs or small groups to work together. We have divided the neighborhood up into small, manageable sections of 2 to 5 blocks each. Each pair or group will survey the trees and tree beds of one of these sections.
If you would like to participate, please contact BHA governor Inger Yancey at firstname.lastname@example.org by this Wednesday, May 18, and tell her your name, telephone number, and the shift for which you are available. The meeting location will be e-mailed to you on Thursday, May 19.
