Arboretum Committee and Horticulture Club plant tree

The Washington State University Horticulture Club and the WSU Arboretum Committee continued an annual tradition this morning by planting a tree to honor WSU’s 2007 graduating seniors.

The tree was planted at the WSU Arboretum east of Hulbert Hall and north of the Lewis Alumni Centre.

The tree chosen to honor this year’s graduates was a White Oak (Quercus alba), a large, deciduous tree that can reach up to 60 to 80 feet and that is as wide or wider than tall.

Its fall foliage is purple-red, fairly showy and long-lasting.

The annual tradition began in 1985 by the two clubs and former WSU President Sam Smith.

This morning’s tree planting was not hampered by the rainy weather.
