In keeping with planting designer Piet Oudolf’s vision, High Line plants are not trimmed back at the onset of cold weather. Instead, the textured grasses, skeletal plant stalks, and dried seed heads define the High Line’s winter landscape. When spring arrives, the plants must be trimmed back to make way for new growth. This horticultural effort, called High Line Spring Cutback, takes place throughout the month of March.

Spring Cutback is a monumental task, requiring the hard work and dedication of staff and volunteers over the course of several weeks. Together, we trim back more than 100,000 plants that grow along our mile-long park – and we would love your help.

Learn how you can become a Spring Cutback volunteer.

The High Line is one mile in length, connecting three neighborhoods along the west side of Manhattan.

During snow and ice storms, portions of the High Line, or the entire High Line, may experience delayed openings, early closures, or complete closures to ensure visitor safety and to enable staff to clear the park’s pathways. Learn more about our process for clearing snow and ice.

A new High Line Billboard, Shelf Still Life by artist Jonas Wood, is on view at West 18th Street and 10th Avenue.

Wood's work depicts a group of potted plants arranged on a shelf. The plants’ lush green leaves and bright colors of the pots contrast with the neutral hues of the surrounding winter brush, acting as a reminder of the greenery that populates the elevated park in warmer months. Shelf Still Life, the thirteenth installment on High Line Billboard, will be up through February 3.
