Tree Guard Petition
We, the residents of Kings County, join Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams, in petitioning the City, particularly the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), to use capital funding to install tree guards for ALL trees (new and OLD) within the confines of our great borough.

We want to change the current rule that only allows for local elected officials to provide tree guards around “newly planted” (24 months or younger) trees. The NYC Department of Parks and Recreation recommends tree guards as an excellent method for tree preservation by citing the following:

Tree guards are fences around the perimeter of a tree pit that provide a physical barrier between a tree and our sometimes harsh urban environment. These tree guards reduce soil compaction, shield the trunk from physical damage, and prevent pet waste from entering the tree pit. Tree guards have been proven to extend the longevity of trees, increase tree survivability rates by 15.8%, and can also provide a small protected planting bed for gardening.

Let’s protect our urban forest and keep Brooklyn beautiful by signing on to this petition!
