Jenny, nice photo! Is that in central park? I went there last fall and really loved it. I was very impressed at all the elms- and I could see that they have a very good arborist crew- they do great shaping/trimming of trees. I saw mostly the southern half of the park- next time I'll check out the northern half. I saw several other small parks while walking around Manhatten. They all look nice. A friend who lives in NYC said much of the work is done by volunteers.

Joe,

I'm so glad you were able to see the wonderful trees of NYC! And it's good to know that the arborists are doing a good job. I wouldn't necessarily have known that. Yes, do get to the northern areas. Especially above 103rd St. The Ravine and North Woods are more wild looking...as far as Central Park goes. Also, Inwood Park has a stunning grove of Tulips.

I don't know if the tree is the photo is in Central Park. It wasn't indicated.

Because of this book, I am inspired to try to take pix of trees again (as well as birds, of course!).

Speaking of birds.....here's a photo of a male Common Yellowthroat:
