Mare Island Tree Tour

Mare Island Tree Tour

Experience 142 years of not just naval history, but tree history, as we explore the “roots” of the various tree species on Mare Island.

In 1854, Mare Island’s first Commander (later Admiral), David G. Farragut arrived on a land that was low and flat. Mare Island’s Alden Park, home to a fine collection of trees from many continents and climates of the world, was named for Commander James Alden who carried on Farragut’s tradition of enticing ship captains to bring trees from their voyages. More than a century later, touring the nearly 200 tree species that now live on Mare Island is like touring the world.

On Saturday, April 20th, we will meet for coffee, have an introductory talk, go on a tree tour, led by tree marketing expert, Sarah Gaskin of A Plus Tree LLC. We hope you will join us! (Limited to 25 guests).
