Plants in Preservation Practice


Plants pose a significant challenge in the growing concern for preserving historic landscapes. Plants are the most visible feature of the landscape and the most vulnerable. They are subject to damage, loss, and changes in horticultural fashion. Not all of these changes can be stopped or reversed, even by the most meticulous preservation efforts. Against this background, how should decisions be made to retain or replace particular plants? How should interpretive goals influence decisions about plant replacement and maintenance? This module explores approaches to plants within the historic preservation process, from inventory to treatment. At least two class sessions will be held in the field on historic landscape sites in the Boston area.
