Trees of the forest not only give us clues about our natural history and local ecology, but they add grandeur and structure to the landscape. William Seybold, Delaware State Forester, shares some history and botany of these giants of the forest, presents the criteria for becoming a Big Tree of Delaware, and demonstrates tree assessment scoring. He then leads a tour of some impressive Green Giants on Mt. Cuba Center’s property and near-by sites.
