In honor of Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish new year of the trees, explore the beautiful arboretum at West Laurel Hill Cemetery with their Arboretum Manager and Board Certified Master Arborist, Aaron Greenberg and Rebekka Goldsmith.

This tour will focus on prominent evergreen trees while identifying leafless trees by their bark, branch arrangement, berries, and buds. Special attention will be given to trees with historical significance to West Laurel Hill and Philadelphia horticulture. Warm up after the tour with a cup of hot cider or mulled wine!


We will depart from the CONSERVATORY inside West Laurel Hill Cemetery (not the first building you see).
