Bark, Buds, & Berries of Laurel Hill East



Laurel Hill East

Enjoy the wintry phase of our arboretum with a Sunday stroll! Arboretum Manager Aaron Greenberg will lead this tour of some of his favorite plant specimens. He will focus on prominent evergreen trees while identifying trees without their leaves by their bark, branch arrangement, berries, and buds. Special attention will be given to trees with historical significance to Laurel Hill and Philadelphia horticulture. Aaron is a Board-Certified Master Arborist by the International Society of Arboriculture.
