Basic Information
Chadwick Arboretum invites you to kick-off our Arbor Day 2021 celebrations with us during this 1-hour webinar! 

Come listen to Akiva Silver, author of the 2019 book, Trees of Power. Akiva will be speaking about his book and sharing some information he's learned about growing chestnut trees.   

Trees of Power explains how we can work with 10 arboreal allies, specifically focusing on propagation, planting, and individual species. Akiva is an enthusiastic tree grower with years of experience running his own commercial nursery. In this book he clearly explains the most important concepts necessary for success with perennial woody plants. 

This talk is for everyone who wants to connect with trees. It is for the survivalist, the gardener, the homesteader, the forager, the permaculturist, the environmentalist, the parent, the schoolteacher, the farmer, and anyone who feels a deep kinship with these magnificent beings.
