Tree Tour: Virginia Highland Neighborhood Arboretum

Sat Sep 03 | 10am-12pm | Virginia Highland

Touring a Neighborhood Arboretum is a delightful way to learn more about the special trees and explore (or rediscover) the urban forest growing along our community streets and parks. This tour will also include details about the unique history and architecture that exists here, one of Atlanta's oldest neighborhoods and the hub of local favorite watering holes.

This 2-hour tour is a leisurely walk on city sidewalks. The Virginia Highland Neighborhood Arboretum Walking Tour is regularly available on the first Saturday of each month at 10:00 am.

There are seven Neighborhood Arboreta that were established in mid-2000s through a collaborative effort of neighbors, Trees Atlanta volunteers, and the city.

Tour Docent: Jim Long is a Trees Atlanta Certified Volunteer. Jim Long is a retired lawyer and 15 year resident of the Virginia Highland Neighborhood.
