First Annual Parade of Trees Kicks Off

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The First Annual Parade of Trees kicked off just in time to appreciate the fall weather.

People had the opportunity to learn about native trees in the downtown Billings business district. Nearly 50 people of all ages attended the 3-mile tour.

Registered Consulting Arborist, Mike Garvey, says it's important to recognize what makes up our environment.

Garvey also says 13 different trees were mapped out along the trail.

"We'll be seeing a hundred year old white oak that was brought from Michigan. We'll be seeing a tree that was brought from New Orleans, and our American Elms down in our courthouse which are all over 100 years old," said Garvey.

Garvey says 7 out of 13 trees are in the process of being nominated as Montana champs for their type.
