Tree Trail

Why is this tree bark so rough to the touch? Why are these leaves shaped like this? What is this tree with the gorgeous flowers? If you have ever asked these questions while on a walk, our Tree Trail is a great place to look for answers. There are 20 tagged trees throughout a pleasant walk along the trail. The Tree Guide (located in the white mailbox at the trailhead or click below to download a copy) gives information about each tree, from the best place for it to grow to various ways people benefit from their lumber, fruit, or environmental contributions. Visit during each season to watch the natural changes in each species!
