Tree University: Dwarf Conifers in the Home Landscape Virtual Series

Watch the recording here. 

Chadwick Arboretum Volunteer, Joe Stewart, led us in this 1-hour Zoom conversation about Dwarf Conifers for the Home Landscape! 

 Joe's first garden was in 1970  - six tomato plants at his OSU campus area apartment. His enjoyment of plants has grown through the years, and in 2000, Joe purchased his first conifer. His love for conifers exploded over the next nine years and he and his wife now have about 170 different species of conifers and assorted other plants over a 1/3 of an acre lot! 
  In this 45 minute presentation and 15 minute Q&A, Joe spoke about the different varieties that he has had luck with, how to maintain them, and why you need 170 in your lot, too. 

  Visit our Events Calendar for more information on this and two more Tree University presentations occuring in April.

When Wanderers Meet: The Great Jupiter-Saturn Connection
Jennifer Johnson
Associate Professor of Astronomy

Occasionally, the planets do align. On December 21, 2020, the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn will bring them close together in the constellation of Capricorn, their closest approach in our sky since 1623.  Jennifer will talk about the motions of the planets in our solar system, how we see them on the Earth, and why we sometimes get lucky enough to have two beautiful planets together.

Labyrinths, Solstices, and Phenology, Oh My!
Jim Chatfield, Associate Professor and Extension Specialist, Horticulture
 Dan Herms PhD,  Former Professor and Department of Entomology Chair; currently the Vice President of Research and Development for The Davey Tree Expert Company.

From Chartres to Chadwick, from Equinox to Solstice, to the phenological link of biology and environment, the “everlasting vision of the ever-changing view” is of great import to lovers of plants and the nurture and enjoyment of nature. Let’s chat! This won’t be complete without an appearance of Dan Herms speaking to the Phenology and Solstice Pavilion at Chadwick’s Secrest sisteretum at OSU-Wooster.
