Tree Mob™! Expanding the Collection on Arbor Day

Every day is Arbor Day at the Arnold Arboretum, but we thought we’d celebrate National Arbor Day by publicly planting a tree. Join us as we add Magnolia stellata (Acc. #393-2008*B) to the collection of magnolias that adorn the Hunnewell Lawn. We will discuss the provenance of this plant, settle it into its new location, and learn about proper care for a newly planted specimen. And finally, we will fasten on the official identification tag to this specimen that we hope thrives for a century or more. Don’t miss this mob or the sight of the Arboretum’s rich magnolia collection, now in full bloom. Gather on the Hunnewell Lawn at 1:00pm on Friday, April 24.
