Where can we go to see magnificent collections of trees? In this two-part webinar series, representatives from various Georgia botanical gardens and arboretums talk to us about their venue, its location, history, and the outstanding trees maintained there.  These gardens and arboretums are excellent places to visit and learn about tree species.
