Wave Hill Research: Trees - Original Post with Corrections by Charles Day, Ruth Rea Howell Horticultural Interpreter

Welcome to Wave Hill! Here is the lovely White Oak before renewing its irregularly shaped leaves.
Here is the Hardy Kiwi, b. 1967. Wikipedia says, "Actinidia arguta (hardy kiwi) is a perennial vine native to Japan, Korea, Northern China, and Russian Siberia. It produces a small fruit resembling the kiwifruit.[1]" 

In casual conversation Wave Hill's Chief Arts Curator Jennifer McGregor remarked, "The trees in winter are Wave Hill's sculpture garden." Witness the grand Sugar Maple. Look at the shadows--the structure of each tree!
Love this crazy Beaked Yucca (Yucca Rostrenta) at the entrance of Glyndor Gallery, our studio for the moment.
Copper Beech - one of two, originally one of five,
called Estate Trees because they require so much room to grow. 
Crapemyrtle Cultivar (red bark with patches of light gray)
The Cut Leaf Japanese Maple, Weeping Form
Arbor Vitae Thuja Occidentalis cultivar: globosa
Dawn Redwood armpits
Beautiful small Japanese Maple
Upright European Hornbeam with red Winterberry Holly Cultivar berries in front
Extension of small Japanese Maple, right side. Left equally captivating.--come see it!
 Small-Leaved Linden - read Charles Day's post on Wave Hill's blog here: Wave Hill Blog Link
Magnolia buds - with the recent cold, will they bloom? Once they warm  up inside the bud, and sap starts to run, they are vulnerable to the elements.

Thank you to Wave Hill and Charles Day.
