Mobile Tree Trail Revived
Established decades ago, the Mobile Tree Trail had fallen into obscurity until the current Mobile Tree Commission first uncovered it, then committed to continuing its mission and insure it does not disappear again. The project has begun with a review of all trees that were once listed, some of which have been removed in the decades since, and opening current nominations for new additions to the trail. The hope is that the result will be a living project that can change as Mobile's tree landscape changes, while providing a walking or riding tour of the magnificent heritage trees which Mobile's landscape nourishes and which have defined the city for centuries. Mobile is selected as an official Tree City, and this project hopes to bring attention to the gift of our tree canopy.
A recent al.com article tells the story of the project and the Trail, and includes the link to a nomination page so that citizens across the city can be a part of this project:
