Tree stewardship signs matter

A survey of survival rates of young street trees in New York City revealed that trees associated with at least one stewardship sign had a 90% survival rate compared to a 70% survival rates for trees with no stewardship signs. I attended the MillionTreesNYC Symposium last weekend and heard, among other presentations, the "Survival Rates of Young Street Trees in New York City" by Jacqueline Lu of the NYC Parks and Recreation Department.
