Reeves-Reed Arboretum, together with the City of Summit's Shade Tree Advisory Committee, presents Fall In Love With Trees, four powerful programs about why trees are a must for yards and how best to care for them.
Trees provide shade and privacy, increase property values, and absorb dangerous carbon dioxide. Join Summit neighbors for these exciting and informative sessions spread out over September and October.

Learn about the benefits of trees and why we can't live without them from RRA's Director of Horticulture Marc Montefusco, with a special welcome by Summit Mayor Nora Radest.

- Tree Care Tips From The Pros - Thursday, September 26. Features industry specialists Matt Rodda (Bartlett Tree Experts) and Frank Gonzalez (Frank's Tree Service), along with John Linson (City of Summit Forester) and Jason Grabosky (Rutgers Urban Forestry Program).
- Selecting Trees That Thrive - Thursday, October 10. Learn from Vincent Simeone, Director of Planting Fields Arboretum (Oyster Bay, NY), how to choose the best trees for the landscape and keep them growing!
