New York ReLeaf is made up of nine regional committees and overseen by the NYSDEC Urban and Community Forestry Program in partnership with our Council. ReLeaf brings together tree care professionals, municipal staff, utility arborists, state and local government officials, educators, tree board members, and interested members of the public in support of urban forestry across the State.
The ReLeaf program promotes the value of trees, proper tree care, and sound urban forest management practices by connecting communities to technical expertise, information and resources, training, and potential funding sources that will help them meet their local needs and maintain and improve their urban forests.
