Tree Mob: Sweet Birch

January 12, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

It looks like a cherry tree, it smells like root beer, but it is, in fact, the beautiful and aromatic sweet birch. Join Horticulturist Brendan Keegan to learn about this fascinating tree and its role in ecological succession, its use by wildlife, and its importance to indigenous communities. You may even get a chance to smell the wintergreen scent yourself.

Getting to this Tree Mob on Hemlock Hill will involve walking up a moderately sloped gravel path.
