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 Lands Conservancy staff and Davidson College representatives make up the program’s committee.
