Street Tree Pruning Schedule

As a result of the many inquiries to our office about tree pruning schedules, we have asked the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation for a schedule of street tree prunings in our district.  The frequency for regular street tree pruning has been decreased from every 7 years to every 10 years.  Click the map below to see when your block is scheduled for its next pruning.
