Greg Everhart on the Sunnyside Street Tree Team (cool acronym alert: S2T2) have put together a Google map of neighborhood trees exhibiting gorgeous fall colors. Fire up your smart phone and spend one of these dwindling sunny autumn days on a tree tour of your neighborhood.

S2T2’s mission: “to create a more diverse, healthy, well-maintained urban canopy in all parts of our Sunnyside neighborhood.” S2T2 meets monthly, and their page on the Sunnyside blog has advice on what trees to plant for the space available. Partner organization Friends of Trees can also pick— and even plant for free— the perfect tree for your yard or planting strip (the space between your yard and curb)!


Two Scarlet Oaks at the northeast corner of Taylor and 38th are part of the Sunnyside Fall Color Street Tree Tour.
