Butlittle has been said about their role as witnesses to the city's past untilnow.Inthis collection of personal narratives, historical observations, and colorphotographs, Benjamin Swett focuses on great trees with stories to tell, addinga warm and welcome narrative that is unique to the city and its cosmopolitancharacter. The stories of these trees, from all five boroughs--some dating fromthe Revolutionary era and before--link the living with the past in an engagingway not found in other books.Ashow of the photographs from the book will take place at the Arsenal Gallery inCentral Park, March 6 through April 18, 2013.
