Trees produce seeds, nuts, and other fruit as part of their normal reproductive cycles. Many trees rely on other organisms to help spread their seeds and ensure evolution of the species. A byproduct of this process is the great appeal of tree seeds and fruits to humans. This tour will showcase some of the interesting nut trees of the Arboretum and explain what these trees have to offer as well as what we need to protect.

Attendance is limited to 20 to enable physical distancing.

Tour leader: Robert Glendinning
