Trees for the Next Century
The Centennial Tree Planting Initiative exemplifies the Arboretum’s commitment to planting the right tree in the right place, and providing the right care for trees to survive long-term. Arboretum experts will choose the right species of trees to thrive in each of the many, varied planting sites. The Arboretum will provide training and resources to help partners plant and care for the trees during the first three years, a critical time for new saplings. The knowledge that is spread through this effort will improve the care of trees and the regional forest for years to come.
