BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Two palm trees have outgrown their home at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens.
The Botanical Gardens announced that they are in the process of removing a Teddy Bear Palm and a Carpentaria Palm for use in training and workshops.
The trees “matured taller than expected,” according to the Botanical Gardens.
In their place, the Botanical Gardens will add a variety of other palm trees.
“As a living museum, it is important to add new and interesting members to our collection and we are excited to welcome several new palms this fall, especially the rare Copernicia rigida,” Botanical Gardens President/CEO David Swarts said.
