Final Fall Dates for Morris Arboretum’s Dogs and Barks Tour 


Morris Arboretum’s Dogs and Barks Tour, which showcases the Dogwood TREE and tree BARK, (not dogs with 4 legs) will be held for the last time this season on October 13 & 27 at 11am.

Join an experienced guide on this one hour tour that has nothing to do with our four-legged friends, but rather refers to the beautiful dogwood tree and its bark. The tour features some common and not-so-common dogwood species in many shapes and forms, and showcases the bark that aids in distinguishing one from another. There are also many other trees such as shagbark hickory (pictured here), paperbark maple, and lace-bark pine with striking bark formations that provide year-round interest. These tours start from the Widener Visitor Center, are included with garden admission and registration is not required.

Morris Arboretum is a 92-acre horticultural display garden that features a spectacular collection of mature trees in a beautiful and colorful landscape.  The official arboretum of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, effective 1988, Morris Arboretum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and accredited by the American Association of Museums.  For more information, visit:
