National Arbor Day Talk, Tour and Trim 

Join us at Lockerly Arboretum on Saturday, April 28 for an educational session with Japanese Maple expert David Freed. David will give a talk and tour about Lockerly's Japanese Maples as well as a pruning demonstration on a beautiful Crimson Queen on Lockerly's grounds.

David Freed started grafting Japanese maples in his backyard in 2000. Garden Design Nursery in Madison County grew from that beginning, and provides one of the largest collections of Japanese maples for sale in Georgia . David and his manager, Margarito, are known for their artful and aesthetic pruning of Japanese maples. The basic techniques presented will be a common sense approach to highlighting the natural beauty of Japanese maples, and maintaining their health.
