Where are Brookline's Heritage Trees?
The Parks and Open Space Division would like your help in locating Brookline's heritage trees so that we may document, map and celebrate them!
If you know of a heritage tree in Brookline, please map it and tell us about it!
1. Please specify in the Description Box...
- If the tree is located on a street, in a park, or on private property.
- The diameter at breast height and species of the tree, if known. Please watch this video to learn how to calculate a tree's diameter https://youtu.be/es6Z7Iyp1hM
ie. Private Tree, White Oak, 43" DBH (diameter at breast height)
2. We encourage you to upload an image of the tree (click "Add supporting media" below the Description Box).
3. Please specify the location and/or pin it on the map! Make sure to check "YES" when asked "Is your idea about a place or places". Try to be as accurate as possible when pinning the location on the map.
We look forward to seeing where all of these great, old trees are! Can you find a tree larger than the Town's 54" DBH oak at Harry Downes Playground? Or a tree as old as the European Beech trees at Longwood Mall planted in the 1850s?
