Unlike the carefully protected paintings in an art museum, the treasures in the Arboretum’s Living Collection of trees, shrubs, and vines are subject to Boston’s ever-changing weather. This winter’s astonishing deluge of snow may result in some damage to our plants, but there have been more devastating weather events here in the past. Read about the major storms that affected the Arboretum’s collection from 1938 to 1997.
