Trees of New York City, including Central Park and Long Island: A Guide to Common Native Species
What trees are in your favorite grove in Central Park, or along the roadsides on Long Island?
Now you can identify them quickly with this convenient, easy-to-use field guide, containing more than 60 vibrant color photos.
Grouped by mature size and photographed to display their most distinguishing characteristics—leaf shape, flower, seed, nut, or fruit—common native trees in this guide can be found in Central Park, Prospect Park, the High Line, Jones Beach and Robert Moses State Parks, Gateway National Recreation Area, Fire Island National Seashore, and on the streets of New York City.
Accompanying text points out the unique features of each tree, to help you tell one tree from another in no time. Six double-sided, waterproof panels fold up to fit into your back pocket, waist pack or purse.
