In late April/early May, construction of an expanded gatehouse and entry will begin. The Arboretum remains open during construction and expects minimal delays.  Thanks to everyone's patience as gatehouse and entrance lane improvements will help improve visitors' experience from the moment of entry to the Arboretum.  Trees cut down due to construction are being replaced with sugar maples selected for more diverse fall color.
