Native Tree Grove

The Native Tree Grove at Jefferson Farm and Garden

Educational plantings, including the Native Tree Grove (image right), are available during tours and other events. The Native Tree Grove showcases some of Missouri’s most important native tree species, which provide humans and the environment with numerous benefits. Along with providing oxygen and absorbing pollutants, native trees are important because they are adapted to the soil and weather of a region, making them resilient to pests, diseases and weather variations. They are also homes for various sorts of wildlife, which use the branches, trunks, and roots as habitat.
