Maupin Elementary Climbing Tree featured on


The Louisville neighborhood blog Broken Sidewalk recently featured TreesLouisville’s current project, the Maupin Elementary Climbing Tree! From the website:

When I was a kid, no, well into adulthood, I’ve loved climbing trees. Always fascinated with architecture, trees are a sort of natural skyscrapers and a forest is nature’s downtown. A campaign launched by TreesLouisville seeks to bring that joy of playing in and around trees to students at Maupin Elementary School’s Early Childhood Development Center in the Parkland neighborhood by relocating a 35-year-old climbing tree to the school grounds.
