The purchase of labels & tags for trees was made possible by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay through a grant from Altria.
The Joseph Bryan Park Tree Tour was developed by the Friends of Bryan Park in 2012 and updated with the help of the Richmond Tree Stewards in 2014. The tour highlights a wide variety of trees, from a specimen long-leaf pine to a dawn redwood to an evergreen live oak. A post oak, easily identified by the unique shape of its leaves, is also on the tour.
From Shelter 1 look to the right of the large, roofed bulletin board where you will find a large cluster of black oaks. Look for the green tag approximately 5 feet up the trunk of one of these oaks. The tour begins there and features 26 different trees in a loop pattern that surrounds the Shelter.
