Where Did That Tree Come From?

WHEN: Sunday, July 16, 9:30 a.m.

Please note: Our registration policy has changed. Registration is for one individual only. Each attendee must be registered separately.

WHERE: Meet at Building 72 in the Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm, east of the Prince of Wales roundabout.

WHAT: There are many sources for planted specimens in the Dominion Arboretum, since the scope of the collection includes any tree or shrub that could possibly grow in the climate and soils of this iconic Canadian site. History is recorded in the performance of the trees, as well as in written records. The tour leader will give a peek into the origins of some of the trees, as well as their characteristics and requirements, and some insight as to what has worked well and what not so well over the years.

Tour leader: Rob Glendinning
