Most of us love big trees. Jim Earnest will give a one-hour PowerPoint presentation on Champion Trees of the Overland Park Arboretum on January 29 at 1:00 PM. This is an exciting new program from the Education Committee. Ken O’Dell and Jim have walked the trails and gardens at the Arboretum and measured more than 200 trees over the past three years. The largest of twenty-four species have been selected for this presentation. Jim will show and discuss these big trees, including giant cottonwoods and sycamores, beautiful oaks and hickories along with many others. He will also show you where to find these special trees at the Arboretum.
