Tree Walk Sponsored By Powell Gardens and Grow Native!

Mount Washington Cemetery • 614 S. Brookside Ave • Independence, MO • Map

Sunday, April 19th, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m learn about native trees in spring, summer, and fall from Alan Branhagen, Director of Horticulture at Powell Gardens. Meet at the main entrance at Mount Washington Cemetery, 614 S. Brookside Ave., Independence, MO 64053. This walk is timed to enjoy the flowering dogwoods in bloom. It is the site of area champion sycamore, mockernut hickory, pignut hickory and baldcypress with large examples of black hickory, both species of catalpa, and willow oak. Mount Washington Cemetery dates to 1900 and lies on loess-covered hills near the Missouri River, which support one of the richest diversity of trees in the region. No facilities are provided although there is a Quick Trip nearby on Winner Road just east of I-435. The walk is designed to cover approximately two miles so guests should wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather.
