The following story was recently broadcast on National Public Radio:

Mapping (Almost) Every Tree in Central Park
by Margot Adler

There are more than 20,000 trees in New York City's Central Park and an author and birdwatcher have mapped almost every one of them.

Edward Barnard and Ken Chaya's map, "Central Park Entire," took them two and a half years to finish. Chaya walked thousands of miles in the park, mapping every tree and dirt trail.
