Guided Tree Walks of the Arboretum September 2018



Silviculturally-speaking, and since an Arboretum is defined as a living collection of trees - what guided tour could be more fitting at Boyce Thompson Arboretum than a once-a-month "Trees of BTA" narrated walk? We invite those who love all things sylvan and want to learn more about trees to be here for a relaxed, slow-paced afternoon tour featuring Arboretum Staffer Jeff Payne for a chance to learn about trees both native to the Sonoran Desert and exotic, with a skilled professional's tips on tree care and horticulture. Tree walks start at the Visitor Center breezeway at 8:00 a.m. August 19, and September 16, and at 1:30 p.m. on October 12, November 18, and December 16.
