Connecting Fremont's Past & Future
Fremont is home to many Landmark trees that decorate the city with heritage. Their locations often coincide with historical farms, ranches, nurseries, orchards and wineries that were once owned by early pioneer families such as Shinn, Rock, Stanford, Chadbourne, Vallejo, and Patterson.
The City of Fremont places great value in promoting and protecting its historical or landmark trees so that the link between our past and our future remains unbroken.
The First Publication
In the early 1970's, a group called the City Beautiful Committee gathered information and documented tree species and their locations. In 1973 the City of Fremont published this booklet.
The Updated Publication
This booklet, published in 2012, has been updated to "retire" trees which have not stood the test of time, and to include new landmark trees.
