2021 TREE SYMPOSIUM - CONIFERS AS LIVING SCULPTURES
VIRTUAL ZOOM PROGRAM
Christie Dustman started her landscape design firm, Christie Dustman & Company, 22 years ago. She has won design awards, teaches at many venues, including the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University and in 2021, her private garden was featured in Fine Gardening Magazine.
Christie's talk will use photos to illustrate the thought process behind why she does what she does, always with a dash of humor. She loves plants, loves satisfying design and loves the feeling of "ahhh - this is just right" in a garden. Her talk will cover conifers as a unique and often misunderstood plant category in the garden. The lecture examines the criteria of 'what is a sculpture' and makes the argument that conifers are living sculptures, providing key artistic moments to modern gardens rather than being relegated as blobs of the past.
