Trees Atlanta Urban Walk: Virginia Highland Arboretum
Stroll through the Virginia Highland neighborhood with Trees Atlanta Docent Jim Long. The Virginia Highland Neighborhood Arboretum was created in collaborated with neighbors, Trees Atlanta staff and volunteers. Touring a Neighborhood Arboretum is a delightful way to learn more about the special trees and explore (or rediscover) the urban forest growing along our community streets and parks.
Currently, there are seven Neighborhood Arboreta that were established in mid-2000s. Each arboretum showcases interesting and well-cared for trees that reflect many years of committed stewardship through long-term collaboration of neighbors, Trees Atlanta volunteers, and the city.
