Meet the Trees!
Our historic trees
The trees in the Gardens were planted by many people since the 1800s.
Some of the trees are native to California, locally and from afar.
Other trees come from Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, South America, and the East Coast of the US.
Touring the Gardens
The Walking Tours for 2019 and 2017 feature some of the trees in the Gardens.
In the future there will be a tree map so you can identify all of the unusual trees on the grounds. Would you like to help?
Do you have questions about your own plants and trees?
One of the best plant ID books is Matt Ritter's "A Californian's Guide to the Trees Among Us." It is easy to use and full of information about the trees that have made a home in California.
In the future, the trees will be identified by their number.
For plant diseases, you can bring your plants to the UC Botanic Garden in Berkeley to their Sick Plant Clinic. The clinics are usually the first Saturday of the month. Check their Calendar for exceptions and location.
Also available to Alameda County residents is the Master Gardener program.
