River Garden Tree Pit Project
Many Bronx residents suffer from respiratory problems due to air pollution and other toxic factors. Most people don’t know how important street trees are in keeping our air clean and beautifying an area. Many Bronx streets trees are weak, damaged and ugly.
This project focuses on building tree guards to protect our trees from damage such as soil compaction, waste/pollution from dogs and human vandalism, with the intent to improve air & water quality.
