The 18,000 sq. ft. roof garden at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston was installed in 1976 and is considered one of the oldest, still original roof gardens in the country. The garden is on the fourth floor, 90' above the ground floor with sweeping views towards Boston Harbor and the Seaport District. The roof garden has many specimen trees including contorted European beech, weeping white pines, numerous low growing crab apples, Japanese white pines, and includes a specimen Japanese thread leaf maple. Many organically grown edibles are incorporated into the seasonal plantings. The FRB property has over 200 trees and a 60' roof top greenhouse all maintained by the Bank's horticulture staff.
