Tree rhymes with Free

A tree grows in Brooklyn… and they’re giving them away for free, apparently!!!

The Gowanus Canal Conservancy, featured here speed composting, has 100 trees that they are giving away for free March 24th at the Salt Lot in Gowanus. The trees being distributed are courteous of the MillionTreeNYC and New York Restoration Project. The trees will come in a 3 and 7 gallon plastic container, so you might want to think about a vehicle for transport…(dragging a tree through the subway, although hilarious, is not advised.) The trees will need to be planted on private property and cannot be used for planting on sidewalks, left in/placed in containers, or planted on roofs.

Trees are cool, just like bow-ties are cool!


Trees provide oxygen that we need to breathe. They can provide shade on a hot summers day.

Trees can mark where you buried treasure…

Shawshank Redemption

Trees can inspire song lyrics…

Finally, trees can kick some serious ass…

Trees are  just awesome!!!

The Gowanus Canal Conservancy free tree give away on March 24th is a first come first serve basis, but you can register here to make sure you get one.

Go on get your tree on!
