NANCY ROSS HUGO describes the joy of discovering unfamiliar features of familiar trees and how carefully observing seeds, catkins, flowers, resting buds, emerging leaves, and other small phenomena of ordinary backyard and roadside trees can provide insight into tree biology and reveal a whole new universe of tree beauty.
She also shares what decades planting and observing trees has taught her about which trees make the best landscape investments and the importance of planting long-lived, legacy trees.
Nancy has had the privilege of living among trees, writing about trees, and learning about trees for most of her life. As garden columnist for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, education manager at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, and writer for publications including Horticulture, Fine Gardening, and American Forests, she has been combining her love of the outdoors with her love of the written word for almost 40 years.
*This lecture will take place in the lecture hall at the RCC-Warsaw campus.
