Big Tree Hike

September 15

Join Certified Tree Expert Jack Kuhlman and visit a few of the largest trees in the state! Duke Farms is home to the second-largest red oak in New Jersey (our state tree!), many Champion trees, and a number of other trees that haven’t made the official list but are impressive in their own right.

During this program, you will learn how to estimate tree size, explore the reasons behind impressive tree growth, and learn how to ID many native species.

The program will run through lunch and traverse several miles of trails, so please dress appropriately and bring water and a snack.
