The Polly Hill Arboretum welcomes back Matt Lobdell who began a yearlong internship in September. As the arboretum’s first collections management intern, Matt will have the opportunity to develop his horticultural skills while gaining an in-depth understanding of the maintenance and management of the living collection. Matt is a certified arborist and brings with him a solid background in hands-on horticulture and arboriculture as well as experience managing invasive exotic plants. Most recently he worked as a horticultural apprentice at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University. A 2007 graduate of Kenyon College and former West Tisbury resident, Matt was a summer intern at the arboretum in 2006.
