Abstract

The lilac in the Longfellow Garden planted by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is being cared for at O'Donal's Nursery in Gorham while the adjacent Maine Historical Society is renovated. Other venerable trees in Maine include the Arnold Expedition Park pines on Skowhegan Island, witness to the first amphibious military assault in the nation's history in 1775, when Benedict Arnold led American soldiers north to attack Quebec. Bowdoin Pines in Brunswick are believed to be among the last remaining "mast pines" in the state. With details on several historic houses in southern Maine.
