Historic Tree Walk at Highland
July 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The July tree walk with the Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards has been rescheduled for Monday, July 9, from 9 – 10:30 a.m. Participants will learn more about Highland’s trees during this free 90-minute walk at James Monroe’s historic property. Highland’s open spaces afford vistas of mature ash, black walnut, maples, oaks, and other native trees. You will also see a hemlock and towering white oak that date to Monroe’s time! Learn how to identify trees in the summer using leaves, bark, twigs, form, and many other features, as well as how Highland trees and tree-ring dating have contributed to historical interpretation.
