Home to over one hundred species of trees, Central Park is a superb place to observe specimens both native and transplant. Journey through the park and learn how to identify some of the trees that call it home. Apple, cherry, dogwood and magnolia are among the many specimens we will see awakening from their winter hibernation. Walking tours are limited to thirty-five guests per tour. Please buy tickets in advance.
