Details:

The Bremen Tree Board has established a selfguided walking tour focusing on tree identification and history. Go to website for walking map. For more than a century, Bremen has quietly enjoyed an enviable reputation of having picturesque tree-lined, brick streets. The town’s setting situated in a valley surrounded by rolling hills near the confluence of two creeks (Big and Little Rush Creeks) is enhanced by the canopy of beautiful trees that shade its historic streets. This guide includes a map of some of Bremen’s specimen trees located within the Village. One of which is the 3rd largest Silver Maple in Ohio. The various trees are numbered to correspond to their location. The common name is given first, followed by a brief overview of some of the more interesting facts about the particular tree or the species in general. The Bremen Tree Board hopes that you will find this guide educational as well as helpful in getting better acquainted with our tree-friendly town. With guide in hand, you are ready to discover our beautiful tree-lined, brick streets!
