Bruce Fraedrich, Ph.D and Christopher Fletcher, Bartlett Tree Experts

Newport’s landscapes comprise one of the largest and most diverse collections of mature and exotic specimen trees in the United States.  As with all living organisms, providing optimum conditions to help ensure tree longevity becomes more important and extensive as trees age.  This discussion will describe key considerations for managing mature tree populations within the arboreta setting.  They will also discuss efforts by the Preservation Society to plan and plant the next generation of landscape trees within The Breakers Arboretum.

Admission is free, but advance registration is required.
