Southampton’s Treasured Trees with Southampton Town Historian Julie Greene

Updated: Feb 7

Did you miss last week's Zoom lecture? No worries you can watch the recording now!

Arbor day is a special day where we recognize some of our town’s longest standing residents, many of whom have had important jobs in the past. Well before concrete markers, 17th and 18th century surveyors used trees, especially white oaks, to mark property boundaries throughout Southampton. Join Town Historian Julie Greene to learn how these trees, called “lop trees” or “boundary marker trees,” were used and where they still exist today.

If you would like to reach out to Julie with info or questions about local lop trees her email is

This zoom was free to attend and now the recording is listed here for all to see and share. If you would like to make a donation to the Southampton History Museum to help support this and other programs please use the link below.
