The gorgeous map above by Brooklyn-based web developer Jill Hubley shows New York City’s street trees by species. The map shows data from the city’s last tree census, which happened in 2005; the next one is slated for this year. The red dots above indicate London plane trees, while the silver dots are silver maples. Royal blue dots are Little-leaf Lindens, while the Gingko is yellow.
You can visit her site to zoom in on the map, sort trees by species, and download maps for different boroughs. Street trees make up about a quarter of all of New York City’s trees, says Hubley.
