Her favorite is the dawn redwood, a conifer that drops its needles in fall. She learned about the special lives of street trees from the urban arborist Bob Redman. Shira wrote about Bob’s childhood in her picture book Up in the Leaves: The True Story of the Central Park Treehouses, a Junior Library Guild selection. The couple shares their tiny Upper West Side apartment with two sons, one whippet, about 150 library books at a time, and nine species of trees in their roof garden.
