Tulip tree allee at New York Botanical Garden


Described as "a signature planting", the tulip trees (Liriodendron tulipfera) that form the allée leading to the Library Building at the New York Botanical Garden were planted in 1905 alternating among poplars which were originally planted in 1903 by Nathaniel Lord Britton.  The poplars did not fulfill Briton's vision and were removed by 1911.


We have featured alleés in Frankfurt, in Berlin, and as precursors to tree-lined streets.
