Manhattan Tree Map by Two-n
This wooden map is a celebration of NYC’s street tree population. It is a hybrid of a choropleth map, a bar chart, and an interactive game. Each neighborhood is represented by a removable wooden block, the height signifying the total amount of trees. The wood used for each block is based on the dominant tree species in this area. The blocks sit on a base with further statistics laser cut-into into the board. As blocks are removed a printed map is uncovered showing the geolocation of each tree.
