A Conversation About Trees

Most Savannahians love our trees and regard them as beloved Historic Treasures. A recent article in the Savannah Morning News alerted us to the fragility of this designation as we continue to erode our environment. Large scale development in the county, extreme weather and unsympathetic development in downtown Savannah have reduced ancient trees reaching the end of their life span.

What has happened to our trees? What can we do about it?

Friends of Massie, in partnership with the Downtown Neighborhood Association, sponsor quarterly talks about history and architecture and they intend to open this environmental discussion to the public.

They have invited Paul Daniels, President of the Board of Savannah Tree Foundation and landscape designer, Philip Perrone, advocate for tree lawns and member of the City of Savannah Park and Tree Commission, and Gordon Denney, Director of Greenscapes Division for the City of Savannah to serve as a panel for this arboreal discussion.

Bring your questions and concerns to open this necessary and vigorous conversation about our trees.

COST: Free, seating is limited, and reservations are suggested. For more information and to reserve your seat- place contact Massie Heritage Center at 912-395-5070
