The Village Tree Committee helps manage existing tree inventory, tree maintenance, and works with the DPW department to re-populate the green space in the Village.
Tree Planting Program
Beginning in early May and September, the DPW crew will begin planting curb side trees. There is no cost to you to receive a new tree. Once your request is made, the DPW will inspect the site to ensure it can accommodate a new tree. Once completed, the site will be prepared and the new tree will be planted. It’s that simple. Instructions on the care and the maintenance of your new tree will be provided at the time of planting. The Village Tree Committee is working to re-populate trees that have been lost over the past few years and restore the suburban landscape of the community. Please call the Dept. of Public Works at 354-0064 to request your new curb side tree or to suggest a location that needs a tree.
Arbor Day Tree Planting
In recognition of Arbor Day, members of the Revitalization Committee and the Tree Committee will plant a new tree in the Village. Although the location has not been determined yet, the date has been confirmed for Friday, April 30th. Please keep a watch for more details.
Planting new trees is just one of the many ways that the Village continues its “green” initiatives and honors its ongoing commitment as a Tree City USA community. To learn more about trees and their vital importance to the environment, go to: www.arborday.org
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.
Village of New Hyde Park Tree Committee along with the New Hyde Park Ladies Lions Club planted a tree in Memorial Park in honor of Arbor Day. The tree was generously donated by the Ladies Lions and will allow the Village to maintain its status as a Tree City USA.

Tree City USA
Have you seen the new signage at the east and west entrances to the Village. These signs publicly reinforce to others that the Village of New Hyde Park is a community that cares about the environment and the preservation of our suburban landscape. Last year, the Village Board and Tree Committee worked diligently to obtain Tree City USA designation for our Village. Receiving this designation is a big advance in our community forestry program. It also provides greater access to grant funds which will allow the Village to purchase more trees and enhance our overall tree program.
