Tree Trails

The trails, located within USDA Hardiness Zone 6, consist of three loops — the Jesse Hall Loop, through the historic Francis Quadrangle; the Lowry Mall Loop, centered on Ellis Library; and the Memorial Union Loop, which meanders among early 20th century limestone buildings.

Trees on each loop are identified by 4" x 6" black, aluminum plaques at the base of the tree. The links below will lead you to the trail maps and tree descriptions.
