What is a Treasure Tree?

The Davidson Treasure Trees Program seeks to locate the original Treasure Trees and tell their stories, as well as recognize a new generation of special trees and share their ecological importance to the region’s environment. Local tree enthusiasts, private arborists, Davidson College representatives, and Davidson Lands Conservancy staff, all collaborate to identify these remarkable trees.
