Revolutionary Trees

Fueling the American Independence Movement 

Trees have played a critical role in the development of our great nation, from providing building materials, to sparking America's lumber industry, and standing as a symbol of patriotism during the American Revolution.

To celebrate our nation's upcoming Independence Day, Arboretum Naturalist Bob Chicken will lead visitors on a free guided history walk to several integral tree species that not only “fueled” the Revolutionary War, but also served as a rallying call to the people's liberty and independence.  

There will be one tour at 10:00am and the walk will be 45 minutes to 1 hour long
