Your photo or other artwork could be used on New York State’s 2023 Arbor Day poster. The deadline to enter is Dec. 31.
Entries must feature trees within New York State. See the contest rules here.
The competition is held annually to highlight the importance of trees in the lives of people in New York State. In addition to their scenic beauty, trees improve water quality, help mitigate stormwater, benefit our ecosystems, benefit public health, work against climate change and provide useful wood products.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and its Urban and Community Forestry Program coordinate the contest. It is sponsored by the New York State Arbor Day Committee, which includes DEC, the Empire State Forestry Foundation, the New York State Arborist Association, State Department of Agriculture and Markets, and Sylvamo North America.
To obtain past New York State Arbor Day posters, contact any local DEC forestry office or call 518-402-9428.
