The land on which Washington Square Park sits supported an oak-tuliptree forest before the park was established in 1827. Red oak and tuliptree remain part of the park’s canopy though they were intentionally planted. The approximately 30 tree species in this patch of urban forest in downtown Manhattan reflect the ecological past as well as our plant love. Georgia will explore the changes in this 9.75-acre landscape, and urban forests in general, through the lens of six tree species.

A ten minutes Q&A will follow the presentation.
