Petronius Jones Tree Walk

            The purchase of labels & tags for trees was made possible by the                   Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay through a grant from Altria.


 

The Petronius Jones Tree Walk features a variety of trees easily viewed by following the gravel path around the park perimeter. The mature trees have permanent labels on the trunk at a height of about five feet. The young trees have hanging tag labels.   Many trees on this walk are native to the U.S., some are non-native trees and one is an example of an invasive tree species.  There is always something to see and each season is different, so please visit more than once!

Petronius S. Jones Park was named for a local community leader who worked to renew the Randolph neighborhood.  It is a great place to get an introduction to many tree species commonly found in the City of Richmond.   We hope you enjoy learning more about our urban treescape!
