This Texas Arbor Day turn your attention to the mighty oak tree with author Doug Tallamy. In his newest book titled, “The Nature of Oaks”, Tallamy turns his advocacy to oak trees. While revealing the centrality of these magnificent trees to their surrounding ecosystem we find that the oak genus supports more forms of life and more fascinating interactions than any other tree genus in North America. By offering practical advice for planting and caring for oaks, as well as the best species for your area, Tallamy truly brings the wonders of oaks right to our own backyards. With over 50 varieties of oak trees native to Texas, many of which can be found in our Texas Oak Collection, it’s only fitting to celebrate the rich ecology of nature’s most essential trees with Doug Tallamy and discuss what we must do to nurture and protect them.

Include Doug Tallamy’s new book, “The Nature of Oaks”, with your registration through our payment portal below!
