Celebrate Arbor Day with a Champaign tree walk

West University Avenue is Champaign is a lovely street to take a stroll on, and this Arbor Day you can bring along this tree guide to help you stop and appreciate the “urban forest” of mature trees that line the road. 

If that doesn’t fulfill your tree-gazing needs, head on over to Hessel Park with this guide from the Champaign Park District. 

Want to help add a tree to a public right-of-way? Check out the Share-the-Cost program from the City of Champaign where homeowners partner with the city to add to our tree population.
