Join the Independence Tree and Heritage Commissions for a self-guided tour of the city's state-recognized "Champion Trees." Visitors will learn about the history and horticulture of these amazing mature trees over eight stops throughout Independence. Begin our tour at the corner of Liberty & Lexington on the Independence Square to pick up your map and get an introduction about how these trees are recognized as outstanding specimens. From there, you will drive to each stop where local historians and horticulturalists will offer details of each tree and the properties they call home. Co-sponsored by the Independence Tree Commission. This even is rain or shine!
