Plant of the Month

Each month the Arborist Department will highlight a different, in-season, plant or tree. Pictures will be displayed on the right of the page.

This month features the Gingko Biloba.

The Gingko is a favorite for its bright yellow fall color that seem to all fall at one time. When the leaves fall it looks like rain drops of fallen leaves.
