To date, six students have documented more than 200 street trees and over 25 species. Among the most abundant species are the nonnative Norway maple (Acer platanoides) and Bradford/Callery pear (Pyrus calleryana). The most abundant native species are red maple (Acer rubrum), American sycamore (Platanus occidentalis), and sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua). The Huntingdon Tree Commission is working to improve the borough's urban forest by planting more native street trees.
