Greentree Foundation Trail System
Manhasset, New York


RGR provided planning, design, and construction administration services to the Greentree Foundation for a trail system at the former Whitney Estate in Manhasset, New York. The proposed trail system allows visitors to traverse the Estate's 400 acres of preserved woodlands and open space.

RGR first researched the history of the Estate to identify important historical features in terms of their potential relationship to the trail system and then conducted an assessment of existing conditions, such as topography, drainage patterns, and vegetative patterns.

The RGR team produced a comprehensive report that included plans of the preferred trail system, path cross section details, construction phasing plans, and a cost estimate for construction.
