At this time of year, tree buds are just waiting to put on their colorful spring show.
But trees are more than just a pretty face. Trees shore up our city's many hillsides; soak up stormwater that would flow into our sewers and basements; clean the air we breathe; and generally make us healthier.
What's more, trees inspire us. From now through Arbor Day, we'll be showing our appreciation for park trees by sharing stories, factoids, and ways that you can support your park trees. Flip through the photos below to meet just a few of the trees that we adore and click here to tell us about a tree that is special to you!
