What kind of Trees Live on Staten Island?
Around a quarter of Staten Island trees are Callery Pear Trees, according to an article on CityLab by John Metcalfe in April of 2015. This article references a blog written several days prior by Jill Hubley, who successfully used 2005 Tree Census data to set up beautiful maps to illustrate the diversity and volume of trees in the five boroughs of New York City.
Jill states: “Tree selection varies per site based on site condition, overhead clearance, and tree bed width. The Parks Department uses their criteria to define the habitat for each planting area, which in turn determines the range of species that can be planted.” With this knowledge in mind, we can see how careful the selection is of each tree in its particular spot. Beyond a beautiful sight, it is amazing to find out what effort goes into keeping our city so beautiful and flourishing.
Trees are an integral part of any environment. As the seasons change, we need to care for our trees like we would our children. Much like hibernation in animals, trees become dormant in the fall to winter to conserve energy. Arborists and experts agree that it is a good idea to prune trees during this dormant season. Dormant pruning impacts the landscape far less during the winter months. When trees are dormant, tree removal personnel have a better view of potential diseases and can better determine what needs to be removed.
