9. White Pines

There are new clusters of White Pines throughout the park because they’re the trees that tend to be planted in clearings whenever a big tree falls down. “The White Pines are beneficial to wildlife,” says Baisley. “If you’re looking for owls, that’s where they typically hide — in the needle trees.”

In addition, each year in conjunction with the popular Drums Along the Hudson event, which celebrates Native American culture, the park plants a new White Pine near where the festival is held. “Those are known as peace trees,” he says.
