A Diagram for The Camperdown Elm (2021) 


The Camperdown Elm is the center of a multi-species drama, including beetles, fungus, and of course, humans! This image is a free handout at the Washington Arboretum Visitor’s Center. It is intended to inform and inspire more lively discussions about why we choose to cultivate certain organisms.



Thank you to Ray Larson and Maureen Black at the Washington Arboretum, and thank you to Girlie Press for making this project possible.
