The grove just
north of the psychology building includes several interesting trees. The
cherry and the spruce were planted to honor former chemistry professor
Arthur Scott and his wife Vera. The weeping giant sequoia and the zebrina
western redcedar were purchased by psychology professor Allen Neuringer,
who gave them to the seniors in his department as graduation presents.
And there are also four older apple trees of several varieties that regularly
produce a large crop.
The rows of trees
to the south of the Psychology building are remnants from a commercial
tree nursery that once owned this property. The trees were planted close
together in straight lines to be raised until they were old enough to
be sold. When the nursery went out of business, the saplings that remained
were left in their lines to grow into large trees.
