Tree Tours

Guided Tree Tours

Explore the City of Trees on guided tours with the Sacramento Tree Foundation experts. On your Tree Tour, you will learn about tree identification, Sacramento's tree history, fun facts, and more!

Tree Tours are free but space is limited! Please sign up through our calendar of events

Tree Tours take place rain or shine. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and dress appropriately for the outdoors. We also recommend you bring water and a camera (for all the beautiful trees). Tours begin promptly.


Self-guided Tree Tours

The Sacramento Tree Foundation has worked with volunteers to develop Tree Tours in several neighborhoods that have excellent examples of trees. Taking one of the tours is a great way to see what the mature trees will look like when you plant one in your yard. It is also a lot of fun to learn about the characteristics and uses of the trees.

Tree Tours are provided as PDF files and can be viewed and printed using Adobe Acrobat Reader. The tours should be printed on 11" X 17" paper for best results!

If you would like to help develop a tree tour in your neighborhood, please contact us to get the process started!

Tree Tour Guidelines

Please respect private property and do not disturb residents. If you have a question about the trees on these tours or would like free shade trees for your yard, please contact the Sacramento Tree Foundation.
