Piedmont Park is home to one of the oldest and most valuable collections of trees in the City of Atlanta. The trees are one of the most important features in the Park, providing shade, cleaning the air and providing habitats to a large variety of wildlife. As of fall 2013, a total of 115 different tree species were identified in the park. Of these trees, 86 are species native to eastern North America and 29 are introduced species.
Since its founding in 1989, the Conservancy is committed to the reforesting, protection and care of trees in Piedmont Park. We’ve seen the planting of over 1700 trees in the Park.
