East Harlem tree survey

Jamie Daugherty, a forester for the New York City's Department of Parks & Recreation, surveys trees in East Harlem. MillionTreesNYC has paid special attention to East Harlem because the neighborhood lacked shade and has one of the highest asthma rates in the nation. Trees reduce pollution that contributes to respiratory ailments.
