The New York Tree View Map

There are half a million trees in the naked city. This map has all of them.

NYC Street Trees by Species is an interactive map of all New York's trees. The most populous trees in the Big Apple are London Planetrees, closely followed by the Norway Maple. The map allows you to visualize the distribution of each species of tree separately or view all species at once. The dot size of each tree on the map is roughly proportional to its trunk diameter.

The data for the map comes from the last Street Tree Census, carried out in 2005. There is another census this year and the map will be updated when the new data is released.
