Each year, Trees Atlanta
teams with partners to search for some of the oldest, heartiest, and most beautiful trees our city has to offer. These fine trees are compiled into a list of nationally-recognized "Champion Trees." In this walk with Fernbank ecologist Eli Dickerson, we'll dive into the process of selecting Champion Trees. Eli will help you identify ten native tree species, and will explain why it's especially important to protect and preserve old trees. Join Eli in selecting Atlanta's 2020 Champion Trees!
Getting there: Take bus 2 from Five Points station past Clifton Rd to the S Ponce De Leon Ave stop. From there, go southwest on S Ponce less than a block to the center.
