Tree Identification

Tree Identification

As in most of New England, the dominant living organisms of this park are trees. At the river's edge are species tolerant of wet soils and occasional flooding, like red maple, black tupelo and alder. Species such as black oak, black locust and gray birch can be found on drier parts of the park. While we often take them for granted, trees provide numerous benefits by taking up carbon dioxide and other pollutants, releasing oxygen, providing wildlife habitat and creating visual and sound buffers.
