Great Trees & Shrubs: Adding Diversity & Beauty to the Landscape

As tree care professionals, we are frequently tasked with finding the right tree or shrub for a specific location. Whether as a replacement planting or to enhance diversity of design, it’s important to have a varied list of trees from which to draw. Horticultural guru, Joann Vieira will help you build that list! You’ll take away great ideas including new introductions and specific recommendations that will add diversity and beauty to your clients’ landscape — including trees and shrubs that thrive in the face of challenges like climate change, drought, pests and diseases. 


Joann Vieira honed her horticultural knowledge at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA, working her way up through the ranks to Director of Horticulture for the past 15 years. She recently moved on from Tower Hill to expand and share her horticultural expertise with industry professionals through a new consulting practice. An award winning horticulturist, Joann is the recipient of the Massachusetts Association of Landscape Professionals' prestigious Beacon Award, as well as the Massachusetts Horticultural Society Thomas Roland Medal and Silver Medalist Award. She is past president of the Horticultural Club of Boston and past board member of the Ecological Landscape Alliance. She served on the Awards Committee of the American Public Garden Association, and directed the Worcester County Horticultural Society's Cary Award for outstanding woody plants.
