Treemendous Trees

Growing along the Treeology Loop Trail are fifteen of the Arboretum’s most outstanding trees.   Meet our oldest, tallest and weirdest trees, as well as outstanding evergreens, great shade trees and the perfect tree for a small backyard.   Each is marked with a sign to tell its story.  Hear a message from the staff member who nominated each tree via the cell phone audio tour, also available by downloading the podcast here.
