Central Park's 20,000 trees, some of which are more than 150 years old, are the “lungs of the city”. Tree care maintenance, such as pruning and inspections and treatment for disease pests, by our expert Tree Care crew is a year-round effort. Your support of the efforts to keep the trees well-maintained is much needed and appreciated.
