From @treehugger: 2 very dedicated NYers have mapped every one of Central Park’s 19,000+ trees

The park is home to a wealth of different species--174--with the black cherry being the most common (3,839 of them on the map). But a park is not a static creation. Trees fall in storms, such as the big one in 2009 when 500 trees were destroyed. Others are removed due to age or disease. So the map can never be finished and will always be changing. Since the map/poster came out nearly 70 trees have been removed.
