Thain Family Forest - New York Botanical Garden

The 50-acre Thain Family Forest in the heart of the New York Botanical Garden is the largest remnant of the forest that once covered much of what is now New York City. A canopy of centuries-old oaks, tulip trees, sweetgums, maples, and other native hardwoods rises over dramatic terrain that includes the Bronx River floodplain and gorge, intermittent streams, ephemeral pools, and rocky ridges. The Forest - a unique and beautiful urban woodland - has been an important research site, a favorite visitor destination, and an invaluable educational resource since NYBG became its steward in 1895.
