  • Background: Trees produce seeds, nuts and other fruit as part of their normal reproductive cycles. Many trees rely on other organisms to help spread their seed and ensure survival and evolution of the species. A by-product is the great appeal of tree seeds and fruits to humans. This tour will show some interesting specimens in the Arboretum and help explain what trees have to offer and what we need to protect.

    • Bettina is an ISA-certified arborist and Tree Risk Hazard Assessor
    • Katrina is a co-founder of Hidden Harvest Ottawa
