A Year of Trees, Timbers and Traditions
Throughout 2013, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens will highlight some of our most culturally and ecologically significant plants: trees. Central to our collective Maine identity, forests and trees are an integral part of life and livelihood here in the Pine Tree State. In honor of these living treasures, the Gardens has planned a variety of programs and exhibits exploring the many facets of trees, including their importance in horticulture, ecology, ethnobotany, history, art, and our economy.
