Overview

Join Dr. Peter Del Tredici of the Arnold Arboretum for an in-depth look at one of the most ancient and fascinating trees on the planet. Peter has been studying the natural history and evolution of this tree for the last twenty-five years and is a world authority on the subject. His travels have taken him to remote areas in southwest China in search of wild-growing Ginkgos as well as to many botanical gardens in Europe and the United States. Tea and scones to follow the talk.
