Jim Earnest, The Tree Doctor, will lead the tour of Great Trees of the Stous Promenade. Jim also serves on the education committee of the Overland Park Arboretum and has spent many hours identifying and tagging trees at the Arboretum. The Stous Promenade area of the Arboretum, near the Visitors Center, is home to over seventy species and varieties of trees. Each one is unique, from the shape of its leaf, the appearance of its bark, to the beauty of their flowers and fruit. We will have a chance to see many of them, such as the Kentucky coffeetree, hedge maple, Amur cork tree, Japanese pagoda tree, European little leaf linden and the cutleaf European white birch. Several of these magnificent trees will be either flowering at this time or ready to flower and we will look at the flowers and discuss how they produce the fruit and seed. Come admire and learn about these special trees with us. We will meet on the patio at the visitor center.
Free with admission to the Arboretum, but please register.
