What’s New With Trees Atlanta?

If you’ve been out to the Eastside Trail in the summer, you’ve no doubt noticed the lush grasses and trees that line the trail. This beautiful foliage is part of the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum program from our partners at Trees Atlanta.

The Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum will be a large-scale reforestation of the corridor, with a focus on education. To date, Trees Atlanta has planted ten acres of native plants, providing food, protection, and homes for birds, butterflies, and bees. A natural wildlife habitat requires minimal maintenance and helps to discourage invasive species from growing. The Westside Trail, when completed, will feature another 30 acres of native trees and grasses as part of the 22-mile linear arboretum planned for the Atlanta BeltLine.
