Tree Tour

Welcome to the Campus Tree Tour

The Notre Dame campus was first being developed during the mid- to late 1800s, which was a time of worldwide plant exploration and discovery. This enthusiasm for the new and unusual can be seen in the diversity of trees, both native and exotic, brought to campus, by Father Sorin and later campus planners.

Please click on the name of the tree or the pins on the map to learn about these wonderful trees.
