When the rest of the Gardens have gone dormant, trees become more apparent. Take this tour and visit a few of our trees that have interesting bark - shiny, peeling, or even mottled or lacy looking.

Pinus densiflora 'Umbraculifera' (Tanyosho Pine)

The bark is unusually striking reddish-orange and beautiful exfoliating. The tree is also one of our state champion trees registered on the Colorado Tree Coalition Champion Tree Program.
