Back Border Brigade
The back border of the Chelmsford Historical Society's
Barrett-Byam House is the home of seven majestic sugar maple
trees. Previously, the underbrush beneath this trees was a mix of
dying evergreens, bittersweet, poison ivy and thorns. We wanted to showcase our great trees by clearing out the underbrush
and replacing it with rhododendrons and other native plants.
Thanks to your contributions, the back border has been significantly improved!
