Description:

The Huntington was founded in 1919 by the railroad and real estate magnate Henry Huntington, who created one of the finest research libraries in the world, established a world class art collection, and created an array of botanical gardens with plants from a geographic range spanning the globe.

 

Its world-renowned botanical gardens comprise 120 acres of specialized gardens, arranged within a park-like setting of rolling lawns and large trees. Their Teaching Greenhouse and Conservatory for Botanical Science evidence their devotion toward botanical education. As part of Huntington’s continuing dedication to their gardens, they are in the process of accessioning, mapping, and evaluating the structural health of their tree population. Participating with the botanical staff in their commitment to the safety of the public and staff, Carlberg Associates provided tree risk assessment for their older and more mature coast live oak trees.
