This residential hamlet northeast of the City of Newburgh, bears many majestic homes overlooking the Hudson River. The Balmville Tree, an old-growth Eastern cottonwood, thought first to be Balm of Gilead tree, lent it’s name to the surrounding community. It is thought to be the oldest Eastern Cottonwood on record in the United States. Local folklore has it that the tree grew when George Washington planted his walking stick while he and the Continental Army were encamped in nearby Newburgh during the final years of the Revolutionary War. But core samples of the tree have dated its growth to 1699, well before American independence. In 1976, the Department of Environmental Conservation declared the 348 square foot site surrounding the massive tree to be a public historic park. It is considered to be the smallest state forest in New York State. There are ongoing efforts to preserve the Balmville Tree.
