Join Joe Howard, longtime MNPS member and coordinator of the stellar Montgomery County Champion Tree Program, for a virtual tour and presentation on some of Maryland's champion trees, most of which are located in Montgomery County. There are half a dozen species of oaks, including post, black, shingle, and Shumard. There are Maryland's largest known white pine and white or paper birch, which may also be a national champion. Then there are the national champions: black haw, paw paw, and Kentucky coffeetree, as well as dozens of other beautiful species that grace Montgomery County and the state of Maryland. The Montgomery County Forestry Board has been cataloguing these trees for the last 20 years. Along the way, Joe will also share stories of some of his favorites.
Location: Wheaton Regional Library – Large Meeting Room
There will be refreshments and door prizes. Pot luck refreshments are always welcome.
The meeting is open to non-members.
Meetings take place on the last Tuesday of each month.
