Arbor Day was celebrated at Rideout Field in West Concord on Friday, April 29. The Garden Club of Concord donates a tree to the Town of Concord every year and have been doing so for the past 35 years. This site was chosen alongside the tennis courts after some locust trees were removed. A “Wildfire” Black Tupelo, also known as a Sour or Black Gum, was selected for the spot. In spring the leaves are initially red. Fall foliage is dramatic in color. A neighbor stopped by to say how “thrilled” she was when she learned that this specific tree is a male of the species. She has a female tree and hopes it will assure that the pollinators will help to set the berries which birds love.
What a beautiful arrangement this year despite a crazy turn of events! Many thanks to Ellen Whitney, arranger and Kate Chartener, assistant . Hope that many of you got to see it in person.
