Please join us for our most popular annual event:
9th Annual Greenery Day at Greensprings Natural Cemetery, Newfield, NY
Make your holiday greenery Green – take home a tree or some boughs from Greensprings Natural Cemetery as part of a project to clear non-native Norway spruce and restore grassland habitat.
These wild-grown trees will bring natural character to your holiday decorating. Our volunteers will drop the tree of your choice, and trim it to the length you need.
Dress warmly (wear boots and work gloves). Bring rope to secure your tree for the ride home.
Stay for hot drinks and snacks, and to enjoy the trails and views.
Donations for trees and greenery will be gratefully accepted.
