Is a program by the Tallahassee Garden Club. This page has a map of the trail, tree photos, and links to a number of documents, including a coloring page for children and facts about live oaks. This is a permanent place for people to find materials on trees and their nature.

The beautiful and glorious trees of Leon County define our sense of place. We identify strongly with our trees, and the majesty, beauty and history of our trees is felt by local inhabitants and visitors alike.

Planting native tree species is no different than planting exotics. Consider first, the time of year the tree is to be planted. Trees bought from nursery in containers can be planted any time. Trees that are balled-and-burlapped can be planted in winter and spring. If you are moving a tree and it has bare-roots exposed, it should be planted only in the spring.

Contact Us if you would like to receive more information on the Garden Club and our activities, or if you want to join our club. We have over 600 members and many activities for women and men of all ages.
