Montgomery Botanical Center would like to thank the Cardona-Tessy family for supporting a tropical conifer tree planting day.
Paul Tessy and Genita Beatriz Cardona, along with six friends, helped MBC plant nine trees. The trees were wild collected and raised in our nursery until this year’s planting season. Some of the species planted were: Agathis macrophylla, Agathis corbassonii, Podocarpus elongatus ‘Blue Chip’, Podocarpus guatemalensis, Podocarpus neriifolius, Podocarpus polystachyus, and Podocarpus trinitensis.
The last tree planted, Agathis moorei, was dedicated in honor of the birth of their first child, Martin Joseph Tessy. The Tessy family is passionate about environmental sustainability, and wanted to support conservation here at MBC. MBC thanks the Tessy family and their friends for their support; the trees are looking wonderful!
