The Central Park in New York City canopy has 26,000 trees — elms, maples, oaks and others — just a fraction of the estimated 2 million trees in all city parks, an additional 600,000 on city streets and 2.5 million on private property — and features the type of obsessive manicuring more suggestive of a well-tended backyard than the Northeastern wilderness.
