Lanning Fountain Beech, Other Trees Damaged by Recent Snow

The Botanic Garden and campus Arboretum suffered greatly from last week's heavy wet snow. The most significant loss was the majestic American Beech (pictured) that provided shade for the fern garden and the benches at the Lanning Fountain. Other loses include a large maple on the Burton lawn, an elm on Green Street and a giant pine and oak just past the Japanese Tea Hut.
The Botanic Garden has not yet decided what the replacements might be for these areas but expect it to be 50-70 years before the Lanning Fountain area appears as it did last summer.
