Tree Dedications

Help us keep the Park clean and green.

Hudson River Park is home to more than 2,000 trees of more than 50 different species, planted in every neighborhood across the Park’s four-miles. Adopt or dedicate a tree in your neighborhood today and continue to visit it on each walk, bike ride or run. Together, we can keep our neighborhood’s Park beautiful, safe, clean and green for everyone.

Your generous support ensures that each tree is skillfully maintained, protected and preserved. Through various levels of adoption, you can personally select a tree or grove in Hudson River Park to adopt or as a tribute to a loved one.

These crucial contributions to our thriving landscapes are honored with customized signage commemorating your generosity and displaying your name or the name of the person for whom you would like it dedicated. Providing a nurturing horticultural environment for each tree guarantees a vibrant and healthy Park for all visitors.

To arrange your tree dedication, please contact us: trees@hudsonriverpark.org or 212-757-0981.
