Ann Arbor Tree Conservancy
Annual Bike Ride and Tree Tour
All are welcome for a leisurely two-hour bicycle ride to visit some of Ann Arbor's largest and most interesting landmark trees, and to promote biking in Ann Arbor neighborhoods. Cam Knight, a local tree care contractor, bicycle enthusiast, and former city forestry staffer for over 20 years is passionate about Ann Arbor trees. He has selected the trees and ride route, and will talk at each site about the history and details of each tree. (Do you know where the Lady Bird Johnson tree is?)
Mayor John Hieftje will be among the riders, and it was a recent interview in the A2 Journal that prompted AATC to organize the ride in an effort to help the mayor find a new "favorite" tree. (In that interview, Mayor Hieftje said that his favorite Ann Arbor tree had been a huge elm at his childhood home, but that it died several years ago).
