Great Trees for the Kansas City Region with Robert Whitman

October 24 @ 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM


Robert Whitman, Gould Evans Landscape Architect, created a comprehensive list in 2009 of the greatest trees for the Kansas City region. Whitman polled 17 experts for their tree preferences then went to the industry for their opinion. He asked arborists, nurserymen, landscape architects, and horticulturists to rate each tree in a variety of categories. This list has been the reference for Kansas City tree enthusiasts ever since. For more information about Robert and his study visit the Gould Evans website.

Learn about the trees from Robert’s list that are the most beautiful and durable for our Midwest landscapes.  Robert will share findings from a study of local tree experts and show trees that perform the best.

Colonial Gardens has chosen their top 10 trees from Robert’s list, which are on sale during Root for the Trees.

This special event is free to the public, participants will receive copies of the Great Trees for Kansas City and Evergreens for Kansas City lists for their own yards.
