As arborists, we have the privilege of seeing many truly spectacular specimen trees. We’ve decided to start documenting these unique trees in the New York metro area landscape with our new Notable Trees project. Images and information about the trees will be compiled online. If you know of a tree that you think deserves this recognition, let us know. We’ll send an arborist out to take measurements and photos, and we’ll also offer to tag the tree with it’s name and newly recognized notable status.
For more information, please visit the site at notabletrees.almstead.com.We hope this becomes a valuable compendium for the community and look forward to your participation.
Here is the first tree we've added to the collection:
Fagus sylvatica ‘pendula’
This beautiful multiple stemmed Weeping European Beech has a 47” diameter trunk, a 70’ diameter canopy spread, and is at least 80 years old. The view from below the canopy is simply stunning.
