Happy Arbor Day! In the spirit of tree protection, here are some photos of the trees in our historic Tulip Tree Allée, a New York City landmark, which had lightning protection and branch cables installed just a few weeks ago. These trees are all more than a century old and some are as tall as 117 feet! This recent work will help ensure their continued longevity. ~LM
