Saving Lincoln's Twisting Catalpa Tree

The Lincoln Garden Club is sponsoring a virtual talk by Sean Halloran, the Arnold Arboretum Plant Propagator, on Sunday, Nov.1 at 1:30. 
 The public is invited.

Sean has been instrumental in efforts by the garden club and the Lincoln library to preserve Lincoln’s iconic twisting Catalpa tree . 
 As the tree is well beyond its expected life span, Sean is also working with a community group trying to produce a twisting clone 
of the tree for the library. He will be speaking about those efforts as well as the biology of twisting characteristics in trees.
He will also discuss the latest research into tree planting. This topic relates to a proposed community effort to raise a twisted tree
from the cloned seedlings.

Despite the presence of Covid 19, the Lincoln Garden Club continues its activities remotely through Zoom meetings and small, in-person, outdoor gatherings.  Over the summer and so far this year, 12 members have opened their own home gardens to masked and socially distant tours which has been a wonderful relief from isolation at home.And a group of us will be gathering at the Lowell Cemetery this week for a guided tour of this historic site.  The Garden Club continues to welcome new members.  Feel free to contact Ann Parke ([hidden email]) or Lucy Sprayregen ([hidden email]) if you are interested in joining.  There is membership information and sign-up as well on our website:  www.lincolngardenclub.org
