Bronx Botanical Garden

November 05, 2017  •  3 Comments

I visited the Bronx Botanical Garden to see the Chihuly Glass Exhibit but got more interested in the nature of the garden. At the heart of the Garden is the old-growth forest, the largest existing remnant of the original forest which covered all of New York City before the arrival of European settlers in the 17th century. The forest, which was never logged, contains oaks, American beechescherrybirchtulip and white ash trees, some more than two centuries old.

The photo is lovely. I, too, visited the Dale Chihuly exhibit but missed the trees. Thanks for bringing them to my attention.

That forest was filled with hemlock trees but they were killed by a contagious disease. Then the other trees moved in. I grew up near there and liked to wander in the forest especially in winter.

Just looked at all the shots you posted on the Garden. Nice counter to this gloomy Sunday in NYC.
