Do you like to breathe? Then forget about stopping to smell roses and take a minute to admire the 100s of types of trees growing in Brooklyn. Jon Pywell, Deputy Director of Forestry in Brooklyn takes Greenpointers on a tree tour of the neighborhood to teach us how to identify and take care of our beloved trees.

This tour includes: honey locust, ash tree, zelkova, kentucky coffee tree, chinese scholar tree, the tree of heaven and schubert cherry.

Jon tells us four ways to take care of our trees: 1. water 2. add mulch 3. don’t let your dog pee on them 4. don’t build a tree box around them.

Now you can smell the roses and enjoy this video!
