Go See Trees

Go See Trees is a way to introduce Lexington residents to some of the amazing trees in our community. Central Kentucky has a wide diversity of tree species, many of which are featured in the Go See Trees program. The trees are located throughout the county. Take a “tree-cation” and go see them all. Or, visit just a few – maybe ones that are near your neighborhood or that represent types of trees you may want to plant at home.

Go See Trees was initially developed as a project of the 2018 – 2019 Citizens' Environmental Academy.
