Have you ever been to Central Park in New York City? 
I once lived a few blocks from it and would spend days or weekends photographing the trees in Central Park. I found the park to be a part of my life that made sense and that I needed while living in the city.

So, when I recently heard on NPR that someone made a map of 19,933 trees in Central Park I couldn't help but stop everything else to listen to the show. It took Mr. Barnard and Mr. Chaya two years to identify and map all the trees in the park. Can you imagine? 

PS Photos I made walking around the city here.
