About this Webinar:

Discover some of the tallest, oldest, rarest, strangest, and most historic trees around the five boroughs in this discussion on New York City nature. Brooklyn-based Allison C. Meier will take guests through the new Great Trees of New York Map published by Blue Crow Media which higlights fifty of the city’s most amazing trees, from the 350 year old “Alley Pond Giant” in Queens, to the massive swaying Weeping Beech in Green-Wood Cemetery. This publication follows Meier’s Concrete New York Map and Art Deco New York Map and encourages more exploration of the city and its overlooked wonders.
