Winter Trees Exhibit On the Native Plant Trail

Winter has come, and plants have gone dormant. The arboretum's herbaceous specimens have reatreated belowground, and the deciduous trees have shed their coats of green and gold. Even though the leaves have fallen and a winter chill has settled in, nature still has things to teach us! Throughout winter, we will place a special series of informational signs in the woodland section of the native plant trail, discussing parts of trees that can only be fully appreciated when the branches are bare.
