Planted in May 2009 as one of the 15 trees establishing this Arboretum.
Horse Chestnut, Aesculus x carnae, is thought to have been a hybrid, appearing in the 1800s in Germany.
Look for our Horsechestnut South of the Gazebo in the section for Medium Trees. A Medium Tree will be between 25′ to 50′ tall at maturity, so a Horse Chestnut is a good choice for a home lawn tree.
The Dumont Shade Tree Commission has approved the Horsechestnut Tree (M) for the Adopt-A-Tree Program. To Apply for an Adopt-A-Tree, contact Borough Hall, or Click Here.
