The Yorkshire Arboretum

Meetings With Trees: Autumn Glory
📅 Tuesday 2 October 2018
The Yorkshire Arboretum
This is the final meeting in a series of seven tours, each of which explores a particular aspect of the life of trees.

The Arboretum is always busy in October because people love the autumn colour of trees. On this tour we'll look at the differences in colour of different trees at this time of year, and at the overall effect of their contributions to the landscape.

We'll meet in the cafe at 10:30am and then set out to walk at 11am. This event is free but normal admission applies. For more information please visit:
