Trees and Shrubs
Up to 100 acres of secondary old-growth tulip trees have grown up in the park's forests since the Revolutionary War. These majestic trees are now 150-220 years old and some are at least 120 feet tall. These tulip trees can be seen along Jockey Hollow Road and on the Grand Loop Trail in the Jockey Hollow Unit of the park.
