Self-Guided Tree ID Tour

Learning trees sure can be tricky but there are many tips that can help you move beyond a tree ID novice skill-level. Stop by the Forbes State Forest District office to pick up a free tree ID guide and explore the trails at the Bob Ache Arboretum. Come prepared to learn about some of the common trees of the Laurel Highlands on your own self-guided trek. Each guide will include basic tree terminology, tree ID tips, and fun facts about the trees growing in the arboretum.

Guides can be picked up at the kiosk, located at the trailhead of the Bob Ache Memorial Forest and Arboretum or an electronic copy of the guide can be obtained by contacting rmahony@pa.gov in advance. Maps of the arboretum are also available at the kiosk or online. The office is located at 1291 Route 30, Laughlintown, PA 15655.No pre-registration is required. For more information please contact rmahony@pa.gov. Public restrooms are not available.
