Autumn trees on the Drillfield

Interwoven into the campus landscape, among the daily activities of students and employees and the memories of proud alumni, are the more than 10,000 trees across the Virginia Tech's Blacksburg campus.

Like Hokie Stone-clad buildings, trees are enduring symbols of pride for the university community ⁠— steadfast, scenic, and integral to sustainability.

The campus tree inventory map includes identifying information for over 11,400 trees across the Virginia Tech campus, including tree type, species and origin details, height, and more. There are around 230 different tree species in the campus tree inventory.

All members of the university are invited to interact with the map and utilize for academic purposes.
