  • Much time and energy is spent trying to control invasive plants, including some trees introduced to eastern Canada.
  • In contrast, populations of a number of “Native” tree species have steadily declined for decades, with long-term conservation an emerging concern.
  • What does it mean when we say a tree is indigenous to a particular region? What about non-native, naturalized, and invasive trees?
  • We will explore these subjects, and the history of tree planting in the Ottawa area, via an interpretive tour of the magnificent and historical tree collection at the Dominion Arboretum.
  • The tour leader is Owen Clarkin
  • Although the tours are free and open to the public, please register in advance

COST: Free admission, donations gratefully accepted during the tour
