When you visit Central Park, you spend time with many of the approximately 18,000 trees that grow here. From flowering cherries to statuesque elms, trees help create a beautiful respite from busy city life and allow visitors to commune with nature.
You can directly support the care of all of these majestic plants in the Park by endowing a tree through the Central Park Conservancy’s Tree Trust. Donations of $5,000 and above are acknowledged with the selection of an existing mature tree in the Park, guided by our expert staff. Donors will also receive a granite paving stone at the southern end of Literary Walk, mid-Park at 66th Street.
The locations and tree species highlighted below are just a selection from the total trees available for endowment. To learn more or to locate an available tree, please contact [email protected].

Learn How the Park's Trees Fight Climate Change
Healthy tree canopies play an essential role in combatting the effects of climate change. Tree cover acts like a large, leafy umbrella and has a profound cooling effect. Because of this, it’s increasingly important to care for urban parks and their trees as the planet continues to experience record heat.
