Trees are Sacramento’s crowning glory. Anyone who has strolled beneath the cooling, canopy of towering elms and sycamores knows the city is graced by a special relationship with trees. The exhibition Living with Trees is a snapshot of this complex relationship.  Photographs of tree‐lined boulevards, parks, and residential foliage evoke an appreciation for natural beauty and 150‐years of commitment to trees based on a profound understanding of the benefits that trees offer. Many of the images, however, show some of the drawbacks of trees.

This exhibition is presented by the Center for Sacramento History and the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, and sponsored by the Sacramento Tree Foundation; curated by Lisa C. Prince.
