Washington Square Park has dozens of different trees, including such well-known species as elms, maples, oaks and cherries and some more uncommon ones, including birch and katsura. During the growing season, the most common way to identify a tree’s species is to examine its leaves, flowers, and fruit, but identification in the winter often requires a keener eye. Join Washington Square Park gardener Kaslin Daniels for a winter tree identification walk, where you’ll learn to look for clues to a tree’s species by its bark, twigs, and growth habit.
This program is presented by Washington Square Park Eco Projects and the Washington Square Park Conservancy.
