The New York World has teamed up with Public Insight Network to deepen our reporting by putting questions to members of the network — thousands of readers and listeners who have signed up through member news organizations to offer their expertise to journalists. We invite you to join the network and to help us on our newest project, tracking the care of newly planted trees on New York City streets.
What we want to learn from you is: What are you or your neighbors doing to help saplings planted under the city’s “Million Trees NYC” program thrive? If you see trees in trouble, what’s wrong? Your responses will be confidential. We will follow up and let you know if we’re interested in hearing more from you, and may ask whether you would like your name or experiences to appear in the story.
