Hug a tree and see its bark up close.
Tips for Winter Tree ID:  
  • Black cherry bark looks like burnt corn flakes.
  • Sycamore trees have a smooth, whitish bark that peels off to reveal a darker bark underneath.
  • Red oaks usually have a reddish coloration in the fissures of their bark. 
  • Black gum trees have very pronounced, deep fissures in their bark.
  • Maples, ash, dogwoods, and horse chestnuts have opposite branching. All other trees have alternate branching. 
  • Light-brown leaves persist on young beech trees. 
Take a winter walk in the woods.
Go for a hike at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation and feel like you have escaped to the Adirondacks!

It's a quick drive to get to this Westchester County Park and escape into 4,300 acres of wilderness. The Park's proximity makes it easy to take a quick nature break away from work, get some crisp fresh air, and have your anxiety levels drop.
