MillionTreesNYC Lecture: Valuing New York City's Changing Urban Forest
The Arsenal at Fifth Ave. and East 63rd St.


MillionTreesNYC is hosting a series of spring lecture series events in partnership with photographer Benjamin Swett!


Join us for a presentation by U.S. Forest Service scientist David Nowak, Valuing New York City's Changing Urban Forest.


The City of New York Parks & Recreation is pleased to announce the photography exhibition New York City of Trees by Benjamin Swett. Twenty-eight color portraits of trees around the five boroughs take the viewer up close to some of the extraordinary large plants that grow along the streets and in the parks, cemeteries, gardens, and backyards of the city. On view in the Arsenal Gallery from March 6 through April 26 (Arbor Day and Frederick Law Olmsted’s birthday), the images have been selected from Swett’s forthcoming book New York City of Trees, to be released by the Quantuck Lane Press on March 6.


Space is LIMITED. Please RSVP for this event by contacting:  artandantiquities@parks.nyc.gov


This event is organized by MillionTreesNYC and the City of New York Parks & Recreation. For more information visit the Parks Department calendar listing.


Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
