Deciduous trees are typically the longest-lasting plants in a landscape and, when mature, can be the most valuable structures on a property.
They provide framework to your garden, contribute as a significant habitat for wildlife, offer essential shade in the landscape, and can even lower your energy bill if placed correctly. Through a series of lectures and plant walks throughout the Gardens, this course covers the identification and many landscape uses—and benefits—of deciduous trees found in this region.
