What’s At Stake?

State Tree: Sugar Maple – one of the preferred trees the beetle attacks! And maple syrup is one of the state’s agricultural products.

Forest Products: One of the state’s top industries, which is a vital component of the state’s economy.

Urban Forest: New York City’s most valuable environmental asset, and the quality-of-life benefits that come from trees.
