Hunnewell Building, Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway, Boston

"Now is the best season for arborists. Leaves and flowers? That's just a distraction!" Join Andrew Gapinski, the Arnold  Arboretum's Manager of Horticulture, as he proves his point, by illustrating, in this pared down season, how overall tree form is influenced by three facts: genetics, site conditions, and environmental events. Visit actual plant specimens in the Arboretum's collections to learn why a tree is leaning, why it has "knees," or how its shape may be influenced by internal stimuli.

In case of inclement weather, please call 617 384-5209.
