Join a Fascinating Day Focusing On Trees

Leading a day of exploring these critical members of the ecosystem will be professor Tom Ombrello of Basking Ridge oak fame, Willowwood’s Superintendent of Horticulture John Beirne, Neil Hendrickson, and author William Bryant Logan.

Discover the roles trees have played throughout history and the long and intimate relationship between trees and people. Learn important information on pests and diseases threatening the landscape, fascinating facts about magnolias, why trees play such a critical role in the ecosystem, and so much more.

This event is sponsored by The Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum. Admission is $40 per person, and preregistration by Nov. 3 is required. Please bring a bag lunch. For more information, directions, and to register, visit
