Description: New York City, the largest city in the United States and one of the world’s major global cities, main-tains trees as an integral component of the urban infrastructure (Figure 1). Since 1995, over 120,000 trees have been planted along the streets of the city’s five boroughs. Over 592,000 street trees are managed by the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation (referred to as Parks hereafter). Parks manages about half of the city’s 5.2 million trees and these street trees compose over one-fifth of all managed trees. For the purpose of this report the terms municipal trees and municipal forest are used in reference to street trees only.
