Discover Native Trees at Morris Arboretum’s Saturday Morning Live Tour on November 3 at 11am.  Trees flourish with the correct growing conditions, each suited for a different climate, soil and sun exposure. Black tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica), pictured here, is compatible with the local environment, supports wildlife and provides year round beauty.  Experienced guides will highlight this tree and several other native plants in the Arboretum’s living collection, which comprises more than 12,000 labeled plants.

The Saturday Morning Live Tour Series highlights a different feature of the garden on the first Saturday of each month May through December 2018 at 11am.  The tour lasts approximately an hour and a half. Visitors will be walking over some uneven ground and cover quite a bit of territory, so dress appropriately.  For more information,  No registration is required.  Tour is included with garden admission.
