Trees Take the Spotlight in Hollywood

For our monthly meeting on October 21, landscape architect Mike Van Yahres led about two dozen CATS members on a tree walk in Richmond’s historic Hollywood Cemetery. Established in 1847 on a bluff overlooking the James River, this 135-acre landscape is a recognized arboretum and is home to more than 2,000 trees, including sycamore, black gum, magnolia, bald cypress, tulip trees, and a range of oaks. Many have grown up naturally in this favorable environment, while others have been selected and planted over the years. We encourage all who appreciate trees to visit this extraordinary setting and to avail themselves of a map of its notable trees and their special characteristics.
