MEMORIAL TREES

BACKGROUND

The planting of trees on the Grounds of the University is a long-standing tradition to commemorate members from our academic community and their contributions. Many of the unusual tree species and spectacular mature specimens that can be enjoyed today are memorial trees that were planted officially by the University and privately by alumni and friends of the University.

OFFICIAL POLICY STATEMENT ON MEMORIAL TREES

In order to enhance the beauty, amenity and utility of the Grounds, the University welcomes the donation of memorial trees dedicated to specific persons. The Arboretum Committee will decide on the appropriateness of the species and location in each instance. In addition the University will from time to time designate memorial trees honoring members of the University community who have made significant contributions to the life of the University. The Committee will keep lists of these trees and their donors. Plaques identifying memorials trees are deemed to be inappropriate for the Grounds.

adopted December 5, 1979, J.J. Murray, Chair
