According to American Forests, a nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to protecting forests, has named Sacramento on its just released list of Best Urban Forests. It’s nice to remember that we still are the City of Trees despite the fact that anyone outside of Sacramento or who doesn’t particularly care about trees probably knows us as the City Who Formerly Hosted the Kings.
The organization highlights all the usual points, including the Tower Bridge for some reason. I think my favorite example has to be Ancil Hoffman Park, with its grove of oaks and plentiful wildlife.
What are your favorite urban forests around town?
