tree-hugging will be encouraged but is not mandatory!

100 trees give voice to 100 perspectives featured in the Grand Concourse's TREE MUSEUM. Irish artist Katie Holten created this public artwork to celebrate the communities and ecosystems along this 100 year-old boulevard. Visitors can listen in on local stories and the intimate lives of trees offered by current and former residents: from beekeepers to rappers, historians to gardeners, school kids to scientists.

Visitors can start their visit to the TREE MUSEUM at any point along the Grand Concourse. Pick up a copy of the Visitors Guide at the Bronx Museum, Wave Hill or selected venues along the Grand Concourse. Look for the sidewalk markers identifying trees with stories.
