Lexington is home to an astonishing number of very large, very old trees. Many of these trees were here before the city was settled and represent the original vegetation of the Bluegrass. As the city grew, the native woodland pastures were cleared for development, but the finest trees were often kept in yards, parks and even in industrial areas. Please join Venerable Trees for a guided tour of Lexington's finest trees on Saturday, October 14.
Here are a few of my favorite Lexington trees.
