NAA/NNLA Field Day 2009


         
     

On July 24th, Maxwell Arboretum served as the host site for the annual NAA/NNLA Field Day. Speakers, demonstrations, exhibitors, and networking all contributed to making the day a great success and gave the arboretum exposure to the arborists and landscapers of the state.
