Cheek wood Estate, Nashville, TN

The Cheekwood Estate was built between 1929 and 1932. The Botanical gardens were added in the 1970's. The gardens are well laid out but the exotics have a while until they reach great size. Unfortunately, The Japanese Garden and the garden with most of the exotic conifers are closed for renovations. Hackberroes, Biltmore ash, and chinkapin oak are the dominant native species. They achieve impressive girths. I measured no heights as all of the trees are relatively short.
