About this book

Field guide to the trees of New York and the metropolitan region. Contains photographs, tree silhouettes, leaf and fruit morphologies and is divided into four sections: "The Best Places to See Trees," full of insider's tips and helpful maps; "New York City's Great Trees," a directory of the oldest, strangest, most beautiful trees; "The Tree Guide," arranged for ease of identification by leaf shape and size; and, finally, "Sources and Resources" for future investigation.

The Parks Department's excellent field guide to more than 125 metro-area species proves that we're not all about asphalt. New York Magazine Contains vivid photos, maps and descriptions... famous individual trees... and suggested 'tree walks'. Time Out New York Explains which park was razed by Civil War soldiers, why Orchard Street is so named, and where to find the city's little-known sassafras thickets. The New Yorker
