Thanks to everyone who visited the Abbott Marshlands and went #outonalimb to share the product of their inspiration.
The Abbott Marshlands are home to over 50 species of trees. The trees in the Marshlands not only serve as a source of inspiration. They also greatly contribute to the health of our waterways by preventing erosion, reducing pollutants, enhancing stream ecology, and providing food and habitat for a variety of life forms.
Please visit the Marshlands soon to enjoy its trees. And if you are looking for a great tool to help you to learn about the trees, here is a link to a tour of Roebling Park Trees developed and shared by Nick Alpeza. Thank you Nick! And thanks again to all of you who contributed to our Showcase!
When I spend time among the trees, I feel connected to the land and its history.

When I spend time among the trees I feel connected to the soul of our planet.

The trees in the Abbott Marshlands always have a story, sometimes simple, sometimes profound, but always willing to express.
Trail to Spring Lake
Trail between Watson Woods and Spring Lake
When I spend time in the woods, I marvel at the trees, often changing their cloak of colors. I think I found this trail at just the right time to see the brilliant oranges and reds of maple and sweet gum in autumn. They decorated it like an archway above my head on a beautiful cool, sunny day. A gift to see and paint!o
I love the starkness of bare trees in the winter sunlight.
