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.
