Arbor Day activity

Arbor Day planting

Eight trees were added to the landscape surrounding the College of Design April 25 as part of the annual Arbor Day observance. Students in the landscape architecture program planted the trees -- a variety of burr oaks (five) and chinkapin oaks (three). The trees are native to Iowa and drought tolerant, following this year's Arbor Day planting theme. Photo by Bob Elbert.
