Renowned entomologist, environmentalist, and best-selling author Doug Tallamy joins us to pay homage to a giant of the plant kingdom — the mighty oak tree — and share how it plays an irreplaceable role in the health of our environment. Tallamy discusses why “keystone” species are crucial to any ecosystem and why oak trees spectacularly fill that niche in so many places. Join us for this fascinating talk in the Arboretum’s tree-themed October, and we guarantee you’ll never look at a “common” oak tree the same way ever again! We provide a helpful resource for the best oak species to plant for the betterment of your landscape and for the betterment of our region’s ecosystem!
