A multi-chromatic experience is set off by the texture and form of ancient buildings.  Toby Bost will lead a fascinating tour of Old Salem’s trees, discussing not only characteristics of each species and historical uses, but also the value of trees in the landscape today and how they might work in your yard, or as street trees, etc.   Mr. Bost is a certified arborist, horticulturist, author, and Field Faculty Emeritus, North Carolina State University.   Participants will receive “A Walking Guide to the Trees of Old Salem”.  Old Salem’s trees have been recognized by Treasure Trees of Forsyth County,a program of NC Cooperative Extension.   Tour duration is 1 1/2 hours.  We recommend comfortable shoes and water bottles.
