The City's TreeSpeak program was created in collaboration with The Botanic Garden of Smith College. Affixed to five special trees in downtown Northampton will be prominent labels containing a QR code, like the one to the right. With a smartphone app, members of the public will be able to listen to an audio recording about each tree, which includes information about the historical and ecological features of the species and specimen. This project is designed to increase public interaction with and appreciation for shade trees in Northampton.


The pages linked below contain transcript, picture, and map for each tree in the City's TreeSpeak program:
