This lesson will not go into detail as to what Tree is the best tree for a street. There is no perfect street tree. Too many environment and community factors exist to have just one best Street Tree. (FYI: Only 10 species of trees comprise almost 75 percent of the trees planted in New York City.) That might be a good place for your students to begin. How many species of Street Trees can be found in our city, town, or neighborhood
1. Students will learn the common Street Trees in their city, town, or neighborhood.
2. Students will learn the many factors that restrict tree choices in their area.
3, Students should be able to explain why their city chose the trees they did for their neighborhood.
