Tree Guide

pr-Catawba River Tree Guide-lowresMorganton's Catawba River Greenway isn't just a great place to go for a walk or a bike ride, you can also learn to identify many of the trees along the path.

As part of an Eagle Scout project in the 1990s, the NC Cooperative Extension Service funded the Tree Identification Project. Eagle Scout Barrett Salisbury located and marked more than 30 different species of trees from the beginning of the greenway at Judge's Riverside to River Village.

The guide shows the marker locations along the greenway and gives details about a specific tree species at each location. The markers are easily visible from the path. Naturalists of all ages will enjoy identifying the trees and collecting specimens.

You'll find: American Beech, American Holly, Basswood, Bitternut Hickory, Blackgum, Black Cherry, Black Locust, Black Walnut, Boxelder, Common Persimmon, Eastern Red Cedar, Eastern White Pine, Flowering Dogwood, Hackberry, Ironwood, Mulberry, Northern Red Oak and more!
