Discover over 35 different species of trees in this self-guided tree tour of Rome’s Historic Myrtle Hill Cemetery. Many trees are rare and not native to the Northwest Georgia Area. In 2018, the Georgia Urban Forest Council recognized the trees at Myrtle Hill and placed them on their Landmark and Historic Tree Register.
