WSU Tree Planting Ceremony May 9

PULLMAN, Wash. — Members of Washington State University’s student horticulture club will plant an American Sweetgum tree near the southeast corner of the new university arboretum on May 9.

WSU President V. Lane Rawlins and Greg Royer, vice president for business affairs, have been invited to participate.

As in years past, the tree will be dedicated to this spring’s graduating class. The tree planting continues a tradition begun about 16 years ago by the club, according to Larry Hiller, club advisor.

The ceremony is scheduled for 9 a.m. The site is located east of Hulbert Hall. The public is invited.
