The purchase of labels & tags for trees was made possible by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay through a grant from Altria.
The Byrd Park Tree Walk features trees that are easily viewed from the path. All are mature trees with permanent labels on the trunk. Take a close look and you can find red maple flowers in very early spring, sourwood flowers in early summer, beech nuts a little later. Notice the great variety of leaf shapes and distinctive bark. There is always something to see and each season is different, so visit more than once!

Please note that this is a work in progress. We still have trees to tag and will update the maps when all is complete.
