Arborjet Helping One Tree at a Time - Saving America's Iconic Trees logoArborjet, a tree and plant health care company, will be treating historic trees at The Gardens at Elm Bank on June 11.

Elm Bank, located in Wellesley, Mass., is the latest in a series of locations Arborjet is visiting.

Arborjet will donate treatment as part of their “Saving America’s Iconic Trees,” program. The program is an initiative to ensure the health and longevity of trees in the United States. Arborjet is focusing on treating America’s most beloved trees. These historic trees are often located in public parks, gardens and other historic sites. The complementary treatment from Arborjet will prevent insects, disease and poor health.

Elm Bank is home of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. The property includes a 175-acre recreational area of woodlands and fields.

The property was developed as a private residence in the 17th century. It was named Elm Bank when Colonel John Jones planted elms along the banks of the Charles River. Today, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation manages the property. The trees are thought to be some of the original plantings from Frederick Law Olmstead’s original design of the property.

Arborjet invites private homeowners and state, city, town and municipal leaders to nominate iconic trees in their communities for potential recognition and treatment.
