Overview

New York City, once a lush and verdant group of forested islands, is still home to a rich collection of diverse tree species, each with a story to tell about the city's past. This gorgeous book by naturalist and photographer Benjamin Swett offers stunning color photographs, personal narratives, and fascinating historical observations about a select few of the thousands of trees that thrive in the five boroughs--from the sprawling New York Botanical Garden in spring bloom to the snow-laden residential blocks of Queens in winter. Swett's warm and welcome voice adds depth and perspective to his collection, as well as an unmistakable charm unique to his city's cosmopolitan character. The stories of these trees--some dating back to the Revolutionary era and before--link the living with the past in a visceral and engaging way that will leave readers with a renewed and lasting appreciation of their own environments.

This book is a new edition to New York City of Trees.
