Arbor Day at the Station April 26

Arbor Day is next Friday, April 26. Everyone is invited to participate in our annual tree-planting ceremony. It will be held at 3:30 pm on the east side of Barton Hall.  We will have a few remarks from Director Burr and members of the Geneva Arboretum Association.

This year, the tree is  a paperbark maple (Acer griseum), a medium sized tree that will help frame the entrance to Barton and make it a welcoming approach from Castle Street.

The paperbark maple (Acer griseum) is an Asian native that has found much landscape value in the Northeast. It is generally a small or medium-sized tree with visual interest in every season as it displays green leaves, fruit, fall color, and attractive exfoliating bark.
