Trees are the cornerstone of Wave Hill’s landscape. They create a stable backdrop for the ever-changing gardens, frame views, offer food and shelter for wildlife and provide cooling shade for reposing visitors. Featured below are a select group of venerable trees from our living collection.

Highlights this Fall

Just a taste of what's blooming at Wave Hill

Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum)
