We know that trees improve living conditions in cities by filtering and cooling the air, absorbing excess rainwater, and making neighborhoods more attractive. But little has been said about the importance of trees as keepers of a city's past. In this collection of personal narratives, historical observations, and color photographs, Benjamin Swett focuses on trees with stories to tell, adding a warm and welcome outlook that is unique to the city and its cosmopolitan character. The stories of these trees from all five boroughs -- some dating back to the Revolutionary era and before -- link the living with the past in an unusual, engaging way.
