Reeves-Reed Arboretum – Fall In Love With Trees
Submitted by Amy Cairns
Reeves-Reed Arboretum, together with the City of Summit’s Shade Tree Advisory Committee, presents Fall In Love With Trees – four powerful programs about why trees are a must for yards and how best to care for them. Trees provide shade and privacy, increase property values, and absorb dangerous carbon dioxide. Miss the sessions in September? Join Summit neighbors for these exciting and informative sessions in October.
