Did you know that Oakland Cemetery is home to more than 1,600 trees, from majestic oaks and mighty magnolias to demure crape myrtles and dogwoods? Oakland’s trees feed and shelter wildlife, help reduce air pollution and provide welcome shade for visitors. Many stand as living memorials to generations past. Stroll with us through Oakland’s amazing arboretum and learn from knowledgeable guides about some of our favorite trees!
Take MARTA train to Georgia State Station. Walk 0.1 miles south on Piedmont Ave SE, turn left on Oakland Ave SE, and Oakland Cemetery will be on the right.
