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.

Go See Trees fall challenge

The Go See Trees fall challenge has ended. 

We hope this challenge inspired Fayette County residents to take these guidelines of "right tree, right place" into consideration when planting their own trees. Different species of trees do well in different types of environments. Planted in the right place, a tree can thrive for a lifetime. Soil moisture, utility lines, pollution levels and space constraints are some of the factors that contribute to whether a tree will do well in a particular location. If you feel inspired by these trees, they are also part of the Paint by Nature program!

Ir a ver árboles

Ir a ver árboles es una manera de presentarles a los residentes de Lexington algunos de los increíbles árboles de nuestra comunidad. Kentucky central tiene una amplia diversidad de especies de árboles, muchas de las cuales se incluyen en el programa Ir a ver árboles (Go See Trees). Los árboles se encuentran en todo el condado. Tome unas "vacaciones" y vaya a verlos todos. O visite solo algunos, tal vez los que estén cerca de su vecindario o que representen tipos de árboles que a lo mejor desee plantar en casa.

Ir a ver árboles se desarrolló inicialmente como un proyecto de la Academia Ambiental para Ciudadanos 2018-2019.
