Arboretum Tree Tour: Identification of Native Trees
Building 72
Dominion Arboretum
Friends of the Farm
Identification of Native Trees

WHEN: Sunday, June 2, 9:30 a.m. Please note: This event has been rescheduled from May 26. Registration is for one individual only. Each attendee must be registered separately. The tour will take place RAIN OR SHINE.

WHERE: Meet at Building 72 in the Dominion Arboretum (east of the roundabout at Prince of Wales and the NCC Driveway)

WHAT: Tree identification is kind of like detective work. During the growing season, the clues include the leaves, flowers, fruit and bark, as well as the shape and form of the tree. On this tree walk we’ll visit some representative species, looking at distinctive traits as well as traits that can vary from tree to tree. We’ll also talk about the concept of “nativeness” as it applies to trees. Join us to walk and talk among the trees!

Tour leader: Eric Jones, President of the Friends of the Farm
