This tree plan, not only comprises a history of trees that once stood in the Park and catalogues the trees currently standing, but also directs the succession and maintenance of the tree canopy that future generations of Park users will enjoy. As we plant for the future, the canopy will include a greater diversity of trees, increasing the overall health of our urban forest and making it less susceptible to disease. Species will be chosen as well for four-season interest, vibrant fall color, and a variety of barks, flowers, and shapes. The tree conservation plan commits Madison Square Park Conservancy to the stewardship required to maintain our beautiful stand of trees.
