New Trees and Shrubs











In 2009, we planted six species of trees – Bur Oak (Quercus macrocarpa), Scarlet Oak (Quercus coccinea), Swamp White Oak (Quercus bicolor), Magyar Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba 'Magyar'), Frontier Elm (Ulmus 'Frontier'), and Pond Cypress (Taxodium ascendens) – along the eastern edge of the Arboretum, which borders State Route 741. This row of 70 trees, interspersed with more than 300 Northern Charm Boxwoods (Buxus 'Wilson'), adds beauty and variety to the surrounding urban landscape. We also launched the Red Maple Society in 2009, with many volunteers helping us plant 100 Red Maples (Acer rubrum) throughout the Arboretum. In 2010, we continued to brighten the woodland tapestry by planting numerous Tulip trees (Liriodendron tulipifera), whose leaves will add a blazing yellow streak to the landscape each fall.
