Neighborhood Tree Walks
This educational program is a cornerstone of Canopy’s work to engage residents in the growth, care and enjoyment of one of our region’s most beautiful and beneficial assets.
A Tree Walk often provides a first-time opportunity to observe, appreciate and learn about community trees and their role in creating healthy, vibrant communities.
About 30 people join Canopy on the second Saturday of each month for a 2-hour walking tour of some of the most interesting tree specimens in Palo Alto. The certified arborist guide presents historical and scientific information, and offers tree selection and care advice that participants can use in their own landscaping projects.
The walks span Palo Alto’s neighborhoods and parks including private organizations such as Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden. Tree Walk trees are also referenced in the popular online Canopy Tree library.
