The Magnificent Trees of New York Botanical Garden

December 06, 2012 at 6:58 pm


The trees and their history at the New York Botanical Garden are the subject of a new book of photos and essays “Magnificent Trees.” MetroFocus host Rafael Pi Roman talks with the author Todd Forrest and the photographer Larry Lederman about their collaboration.

The trees of the New York Botanical Garden are a treasure of the city. Hurricane Sandy destroyed or damaged 557 trees located across the garden, but the vast majority of the garden’s 30,000 trees are still standing. The trees and their history are documented in  a new book of photographs and essays, “Magnificent Trees.”

MetroFocus host Rafael Pi Roman talks with the author Todd Forrest and the photographer Larry Lederman about the Botanical Garden’s trees. Forrest serves as the Arthur Ross Vice President for Horticulture and Living Collections at the New York Botanical Garden.
