Tree Planting Program

Resumes this Spring


Curb side tree plantings will resume in the Spring. If you want to be considered for a new curb-side tree, please call the Dept. of Public Works at 354-0064. A site inspection will be done prior to any planting to ensure that the ground is able to support a tree.


Instructions on the care of your new tree will be provided at the time of planting. And additional information can also be found on the Arbor Day Foundation website at www.arborday.org.


Trees are essential to maintain our environment and the suburban landscape of our community. We hope you take advantage of the tree planting program.

Arbor Day Tree Plantings

As part of our Village Arbor Day Celebration, on Friday, April 29 2016 members of the newly formed Tree Committee helped the Department of Public Works plant a tree. This is the first of many new trees expected to be planted this spring.

The Department of Public Works has curbside trees ready for spring planting. Please call the DPW at (516) 354-0064 to get placed on the tree planting list. While weather conditions play an important role in determining the schedule, planting is expected to continue through May and resume in the fall. Once your new tree is planted, instructions on the care and maintenance of your new tree will be provided.

Please help enhance the suburban landscape of this community and support the Tree Committee as it seeks to obtain Tree City USA designation for The Village of New Hyde Park. Besides its obvious beauty, trees play an important role in keeping the air clean and cool while filtering out harmful UVA/UVB sun light. Trees help to minimize noise pollution by acting as sound barriers while also providing food and shelter for birds and other wildlife. Please call the DPW today and put your name on the planting list.

Volunteer Opportunity - Join the Tree Committee

A new Committee was recently formed to help manage existing tree inventory, tree maintenance, and to re-populate the green space in the Village. A number of volunteers have joined this exciting new endeavor and the Committee hopes that more residents volunteer.

Members of the Tree Committee will research and select software to help the Village better manage its tree inventory and maintenance schedules. The Committee will also seek corporate sponsorship and/or donations for the purchase of new trees. One of the goals of this team effort is to help the Village achieve a "Tree City USA" designation. We can use your help as we continuously try to enhance and manage the green space in the Village.
