You might have noticed some large tags hanging from trees at popular locations in Davis like Central Park. The project was spearheaded by the Arboretum and Public Garden Learning by Leading™ Museum Education interns who created similar tree tags for the UC Davis campus earlier in spring (LEARN MORE).

Approximately 25 tags located throughout Davis display fun facts about the trees, information about tree care and the effect of trees on environmental health. Tags have been placed on landmark trees, trees that are part of the Downtown Davis Treewalk, as well as trees at schools, parks and high-traffic green belt locations.

This project is the result of a collaboration between the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden, the City of Davis Tree Commission, Tree Davis and the California Center for Urban Horticulture at UC Davis who generously funded this educational effort.
