The Evergreens Cemetery, located in Brooklyn, NY is a historic 225-acre cemetery with a beautiful landscape, including rolling hills and outstanding collection of trees. Our grounds contain one of the great urban forests of New York City, and we are committed to highlighting the natural beauty and significance of the space with our public programming.


Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been unable to relish in the natural beauty of vast landscape. So, we invited noted arborist William Logan to lead a virtual guided tree tour exploring our wide variety of tree species at the Evergreens.
