International Maple Symposium 2017 in Roscoff, Brittany, France - 25/26 October

The 2017 International Maple Symposium will take place in Roscoff, Brittany, France on October 25th and 26th 2017. The Northern Brittany Coast enjoys an exceptionally mild microclimate which allows for growing the most tender maple species. The Symposium will follow the traditional format with morning presentations and afternoon visits to nearby gardens and arboreta.
The Post-Symposium tour, from October 27th to October 29th, will take participants to an exceptional tour of Normandy visiting some of the most outstanding French gardens like Vasterival and L'étang de l'Aunay with remarkable Maple collections in full Fall colors.
