Pittsburgh’s remarkable trees have stories to tell. They have witnessed daily life, extraordinary events, and everything in between. Perhaps they’ve thrived where no other green has, creating an oasis of sanctuary. Perhaps they’re at the bustling heart of our neighborhood, gathering us together under their shade. They may have planted themselves, or been carefully selected for a reason. They may have grown true to form, or taken on their own unique shape and character. Whatever their origin, their species, or their appearance, they undoubtedly make our daily commute, jog, or dog walk so much better.
In creating a registry of Remarkable Trees, we aim to celebrate and protect our City’s tree heritage and the many social, economic, environmental, and human health benefits trees provide to current and future residents.
