Here’s a gift idea that’s green, local, and keeps on giving–a shade tree, planted along a Nyack Street. A donation of $100 will purchase a tree that the Nyack Community Tree Project will plant in 2022 on behalf of your gift recipient. They’ll receive a card, letting them know a new tree will be added to Nyack’s streetscape in their name.

The Nyack Community Tree Project was started in spring of 2016 when the Nyack Tree Committee organized local volunteers and Nyack Department of Public Works staff to plant trees on Nyack streets and set up a small nursery at BOCES in West Nyack. In 2017 the program was expanded to plant and maintain more trees and include additional volunteers, including members of the Nyack High School football team and Environmental Club, and students the BOCES work-based learning program.

Donations are now being accepted for the project through the Nyack Parks Conservancy. Email

Support the Tree Project with a donation to the Tree Fund in any amount. A $100 donation will purchase a tree to be planted on public property. Give it as a gift and we will send the recipient a beautiful card letting them know.
