Trees, Climate and Beauty

Lincoln, Neb.— International tree expert Guy Sternberg will give two presentations Thursday, Dec. 7 in University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Keim Hall room 150. Sternberg’s book, “Native Trees for North American landscapes,” is one of the best references on native trees.

The 12-1 p.m. brown-bag program, “Our Incredible Trees and a Changing Climate,” is a reminder of how beautiful and important trees are and what the impact from a changing climate might mean for them.

The second session, from 1:30 to 2:30 in the same room, offers a close look at “The Tree Cultivars of Starhill Forest,” the private arboretum Sternberg developed near Petersburg, Illinois. It is home to one of the most diverse private collections of trees and shrubs in the country.  

Anyone wishing to listen in can take part online at: The presentations will also be available afterwards at

Participants are invited to bring lunch or dinner, if desired, and ideas or questions. For more information, call the Arboretum at 402-472-2971, email or visit for this and future presentations.
