RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — Every 10 years New York City counts its tree, and the Ridgewood Property Owners and Civic Association dd its part this year.

Volunteers mapped 843 blocks and 5,274 trees. Many of the volunteers continued as independent mappers, counting trees on their own.

The 10-year tree count is undertaken and completed by the New York City Parks Department.

Every 10 years the NYC Parks Department undertakes a project to take a census of all of the street trees within the five boroughs. This year, the Ridgewood Property Owners and Civic Association joined the tree count by becoming a sponsoring community group.

They held training and mapping events for volunteers at various locations throughout Ridgewood, sponsoring eight events and getting 53 volunteers to participate.
