Sunday, October 25, 2015 from from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Alan Branhagen, Director of Horticulture at Powell Gardens, will be your guide to this Forest Hills tree walk at 6901 Troost Avenue, Kansas City, MO 64131. Meet at the main entrance.

Forest Hills dates back to 1888 and is known for its beautiful sugar maples, which should be nearing peak fall color. At one time this cemetery had the finest collection of Missouri native trees and was nationally renowned for its tree collection. It contains the area champion blackgum, and large cucumber tree magnolia, a classic vase-shaped American elm that defies Dutch elm disease, white ash, and chestnut oak. No facilities, although Soil Service Garden Center and Nursery is nearby to the south.

To RSVP for this tree walk, call 816-697-2600 ext. 209. Free to members of Powell Gardens, Missouri Prairie Foundation, and Grow Native! $5 fee to Powell Gardens for non-members.
