Welcome to the Notable Trees Project

This project documents notable trees in the Charlottesville, Virginia, area. We have created a database, photo gallery and map of the area’s large, excellent trees which are viewable from roads or public places. While Virginia in general has a large, lush canopy, current weather extremes and intensive development are quickly reducing the number of our older trees.

We include stories and information about particular specimens to educate and enrich our community. We hope readers go to see them in person. And, we hope to encourage the protection of our older trees.
