Tree Mapping Meetup

  • Exchange Place Jersey City, NJ, 07302 United States (map)

Please register here!

This event is one more step forward towards our ultimate goal of capturing the location, species, and condition of all the trees in Jersey City, one neighborhood at a time. This will help the City of Jersey City care for the trees we already have, and identify new sites for more green infrastructure, like rain gardens / bioswales, and more trees.
