Quercus Day in Argentina

On April 25 Grigadale Arboretum in Argentina received a small group of visitors for its first Oak Day. Participants came from near and far (from Buenos Aires at 500 km, and even from Salta in the north of Argentina, almost 2,000 km away) and included IOS members Peter Laharrague and Marilyn Mulville, members of the International Dendrology Society, a researcher from a leading botanic garden, and other oak enthusiasts—or soon to be enthusiasts.

Exciting news for quercophiles: a new book about Mexican oaks will be published in June. It will be in Spanish, but extensively illustrated. It is available for pre-order with an attractive discount on cover price. Below is an image of the sales brochure, with a translation of the text.
