Who We

Get to Know Us

NYCEarth is a student-driven non-profit organization operating within New York City.

Our mission is to bring the largest number of trees possible to vacant tree beds around NYC. We empower teens by creating opportunities for student involvement and leadership.

Why Trees?

Trees play key roles in our daily life. Let's explore exactly how.


Quality of Life

Trees increase the quality of life in a neighborhood. They provide shade, clean air, softened soil and create a sustainable environment for everyone.

Air Quality

Trees are "The Lungs of The Earth."  They trap air pollutants and play a vital role in keeping city air breathable. Without trees, NYC would be difficult to live in.*

Mental Health

Trees have been proven to lower stress, reduce both depression and anxiety and lower cortisol. In addition, trees combat extreme heat events spurred on by global warming. It has been documented that high temperatures correlate with increased risk of self-harm and rates of violence.  **
