Arboretum des Pouyouleix in Arnoldia

In October 2015, after visiting the Polly Hill Arboretum on Martha’s Vineyard and before attending the 8th International Oak Society Conference in Lisle, Tim Boland, the Director of Polly Hill, organized for me an absolutely regal two-day visit of the Arnold Arboretum. Returning home, I received a request from Nancy Rose, the Editor of Arnoldia, to submit an article about the Arboretum des Pouyouleix for that publication.

This year a great number of species are producing acorns for the first time. 

Website for the Arboretum des Pouyouleix

The Arboretum des Pouyouleix (the French National Collection for the genus Quercus) now has a website. Many parts are still under construction, notably the accessions list. Comments and suggestions are welcome! (arboretumpouyouleix.com)
