Trees planted along Grand Concourse as part of TD Tree Day

Bronx volunteers spent the day Tuesday planting trees along the Grand Concourse as part of TD Tree Day.



The financial institution and the New York Restoration Project teamed up to beautify part of the concrete business strip. The trees will replace older trees damaged by animals and the environment.



Himalayan Cedar, Flowering Dogwood and American Elm were just some of the trees that were planted by more than two dozen volunteers.



Since 2007, the New York Restoration Project has planted more than 93,000 trees across the city. Its goal is to plant 1 million trees by 2015.
