Central Park: Trees & Landscapes is the ultimate field guide to the trees and landscapes of America’s most famous park, and features a lively, authoritative text and over 900 color photographs, botanical plates, and extraordinarily detailed maps.
Under the direction of the Central Park Conservancy, the park’s landscapes have been painstakingly restored to achieve the effects envisioned more than 150 years ago by the park’s designers, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. This book highlights the leading role that trees play in defining 22 of these landscapes and chronicles the history of each of more than 200 tree species and varieties present in the park―where it came from and where the most outstanding specimens are located.
Besides being a superb guide to the world’s greatest center-city park, this book is a highly informative guide to most of the tree species commonly encountered in the eastern United States. Anyone who loves trees will find this book a very rewarding read, full of fascinating details and beautiful illustrations.
