Come see the trees of Arlington at the peak of their autumn splendor! The vibrant reds, oranges, yellows and russets of over 300 species of trees at Arlington National Cemetery are a must see for anyone visiting in the fall. On this tour, you will learn about the cemetery's Memorial Arboretum, a Level III-accredited arboretum. You'll gain insight into the urban forestry program, extensive tree collection and state champion trees. The overall horticulture program and the variety of techniques used to create some of the most breathtaking formal and informal landscapes and gardens will also be highlighted. Meet at the Welcome Center information desk. The walk will be from 9- 11 a.m. Please note: This is a walking tour. Guests are reminded to wear comfortable walking shoes and to dress for the day's weather. The tour will mostly be on paved, flat ground but there may be a few hills, stairs and portions that walk through the cemetery grounds and headstones.
