Trees at the Joseph McDowell Historical Catawba Greenway

While enjoying a walk along the Joseph McDowell Historical Catawba Greenway, you will notice a variety of trees on the path. McDowell Technical Community College, the City of Marion, and the NC Forest Service have partnered to create a Tree Identification Program to educate greenway users on the types of trees that are found there. Certain trees will have a plaque with a unique code that, when scanned with a smartphone, will access a web page via the smartphone containing information about that tree. This information includes, but is not limited to, a brief description of the tree, the tree type, the tree's mature height, and diameter, and uses of the tree.
