Help Us Save Fort Tryon's American Elms!

Fort Tryon Park is graced by dozens of 100-year old American Elms. Transplanted as mature trees by John D. Rockefeller in the early 1930s, the elms have offered beauty and shade to the visitors and residents of New York City from the day the park opened. These glorious trees are in jeopardy as Dutch elm disease, a deadly fungus that infects the sapwood of elm trees, has invaded the park. To preserve these majestic trees we’ve begun a rigorous course of pruning, removing infected trees, innoculating remaining trees, and air spading mature roots. We need your help to preserve our unique American elms so the park can continue to have their glorious canopy, shade and habitat for wildlife.
