The City of Statesboro Tree Board and Keep Statesboro-Bulloch Beautiful (KSBB) would like to announce the unveiling of its newest completed project, the Blind Willie McTell Trail Tree Walk.

Nestled between Downtown Statesboro and Georgia Southern University, individuals can find the tree walk on Blind Willie McTell Trail. The area is adjacent to the Blue Mile.

Individuals can enjoy many varieties of trees as they walk along the trail, as there are 30 different species to discover. All of the different trees have labels with their common names and scientific names.

The purpose of the Blind Willie McTell Tree Walk is to bring awareness and education of different types of tree species to residents and visitors alike.

Additionally, the tree walk also serves as a unique way to admire the outdoors. Individuals can also enjoy specific trees that are both established and new to the trail.

Interested parties can find brochures in the foyer of City Hall. Also, individuals can find them at the Statesboro Convention & Visitors Bureau. The brochures can help to locate the walk and follow along the tree walk path.

Smartphone users can also find a virtual map of the tree walk at www.keepstatesborobullochbeautiful.org/willie-mctell-tree-walk.

The starting point of the tree walk begins at E Main St. This is located next to Eagle Creek Brewing Company.

The walk concludes at the end of the Blind Willie McTell Trail, which is next to Fair Rd.
