Tree Tours

Savannah and its surrounds offer exceptional specimens of trees - Live Oaks, Magnolias, Crepe Myrtles and Palms in particular - as a result of years of thoughtful care and attention.   We associate historic events with trees, we line our roadways with trees, we treasure our trees in our parks and cemeteries.   If the squares of our Historic District are our living rooms, the Live Oaks are our ceiling.  The Live Oak retains its foliage all year so Savannah is green year round.  We take great pride in our trees and want visitors to our city to have the opportunity to feel the strength and beauty of our tree canopy
