Update on Astoria Trees!

From the local who started the ipetition for trees in front of Astoria Federal (, an update!
I spoke with Erin Roche from the Dept. of Forestry who agreed to put Church and McDonald Avenues on the list for a city block planting in the spring program. This new program supercedes what landlords want and just comes in and plants big stretches of trees.

We think this is great but still urge you to sign the petition for trees in front of Astoria Federal since b/c of the nearby subway the DofF may not be able to plant there. What we're hoping is Astoria would add planters or something. We're up to 60 signatures please sign!
