Hunt for historic trees in Urbana

Earth Day was yesterday, Arbor Day is April 30th, and the Urbana Park District and City of Urbana are inviting you to find 15 historic trees near Downtown Urbana. From Urbana’s Sustainibility Spring Newsletter: “Each tree will have a Tree Tag attached to highlight the species of the tree, its story, and the ecological and economic benefits that tree provides.”

Use this map to find each of the trees.

If you have a cool tree in your neighborhood or yard that you’d like to tag, you can find a blank tag to print and fill out here.
