THE CEMETERY TREES IN THE SPRING
Saturday, May 27th at 1 p.m.
 
Led by Jerry Bull, experienced tree guide.
Starting at the Cemetery’s main entrance 1297 Chemin de la Forêt, Outremont
 
Spring is the ideal time of year to see the cemetery trees at their different stages of development. The silver maples will already be dropping their fruit, while the fragrant white flowers of the black locust should just be opening, along with the hawthorns and horse chestnuts. As for that Johnny-come-lately, the Kentucky coffee tree, the new leaves should just be out, while last year's burgundy bean pods will still be hanging from the tree's craggy branches.
Location : Mount Royal Cemetery

Autumn is the season of striking change. With warm colours, fruit, nuts and cones, not only are the leaves at their most flamboyant, but the fruit of the trees are often at their most striking and most visible. Bean pods, apples, haws, samaras, nuts, catkins and berries abound on such trees of the cemetery as the Ohio buckeye, spindle, ginkgo and several species of maple. Come and enjoy the beauty of the trees at the closing of their cycle.
