Wakefield Tree Observers

Wakefield Tree Observers has a collection of more than 300 Cornus kousa dogwood cultivars. These trees all exhibit different phenology patterns. Wakefield Tree Observers are interested in monitoring these patterns so they may propagate the Cornus kousas that exhibit strong fruiting and flowering characteristics. They are a nonprofit trust that focuses on environmental education and community engagement using the resources of the property. The focus is in engaging students in hands on educational opportunities.
