Reed Square Trees

The Reed Square Foundation thanks Richmond City arborist Karl Pokorny for identifying the trees in Reed Square.  During a picnic in Reed Square, Mrs. Rossie Fisher (Mrs. Reed’s daughter) recalled her mother’s particular fondness for the Kentucky Coffee Tree and the Scholar Tree.  On her farm in Manakin-Sabot, Mrs. Reed planted 175 varieties of trees.

  1. Kentucky Coffee Tree (Gymnocladus dioica)
  2. Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora)
  3. Hackberry (Celtis occidentalis)
  4. Nellie R. Stevens Holly (Ilex hybrida ‘Nellie R. Stevens’)
  5. Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia fauriei)
  6. Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida)
  7. Eastern Hophornbeam (Ostrya virginiana)
  8. Ironwood (Carpinus caroliniana)
