Berkshire Botanical Garden will celebrate its 12th annual Arborists Day through a day of outdoor service at Norman Rockwell Museum on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
A group of 23 area arborists and related staff from BBG will help to preserve several of the trees in need of repair on the Museum's 36-acre campus.
Organizations taking part in this year's event include: Brush Hill Tree Service; Ingersoll Land Care; John W. Field Tree Service; Marconica Inc.; Race Mountain Tree Service, Inc.; Sweet Tree Service; Treecology; and Whalen Nursery Inc., who will be donating a tree to the Museum's campus.
Several unaffiliated arborists, including Kevin Brown, Joe Burkhardt and Melissa LeVangie, will also participate.
For this educational program for arborists, New England Climbing Champion and International Society of Arboriculture New England Chapter President, Bear LeVangie will demonstrate aerial rescue training onsite.
In addition to this day of service, Berkshire Botanical Gardens has been working with Norman Rockwell Museum on identifying the many varieties of trees on its campus, with several labels already on display.
Visitors are welcome to observe the work on Arborist Day from a safe distance on the Museum's campus.
