Turkey Oak Talk

September 23 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Rough Point

We’re talking Turkey Oaks! In collaboration with the Newport Tree Conservancy, we welcome you to the grounds of Rough Point to learn more about the history of the estate’s Turkey Oak tree and the landscape surrounding it, and to explore NTC’s current propagation efforts to preserve its lineage.

This free program will take place outside on the grounds; in the event of inclement weather the program will move inside to our Great Hall. Please register to reserve your spot!


The Newport Tree Conservancy is dedicated to fostering a healthy growing urban forest in the City of Newport, Rhode Island through a permanent tree management and planting program, for the benefit of present and future citizens of Newport.  In 2017, the Newport Tree Conservancy established the Heritage Tree Center. The Heritage Tree Center is an emerging resource for the study, protection and propagation of some of Rhode Island’s most unique, historic, and at-risk heritage trees.
