Our community’s urban forest provides public health, environmental and economic benefits to Davis community members everyday. To highlight this important resource, Tree Davis and the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden have teamed up to install educational tree tags across the Davis landscape.
Our campus's urban forest management team leads a robust Campus Tree Renewal Program to maintain and expand the university's urban forest of over 16,000 trees. This team's goals are to keep our campus safe, beautiful, and always adaptive to the changing climate.
By utilizing the Friends’ personal archives, memories, and newsletters, we were able to create a dynamic Story Map detailing the history of trees throughout the historic, 100-acre Arboretum. This map specifically highlights our largest tree collections, the Peter J. Shields Oak Grove and the T. Elliot Weier Redwood Grove, as well as other notable trees throughout the collections.
Consider a gift to support Learning by Leading™ and our newest program strand, Urban Tree Stewardship, created to ensure that UC Davis has a thriving, resilient urban forest for decades to come — even as our climate warms.
