Arboretum Project


Marshall University Arboretum Project

Marshall-University
Marshall University is home to over 700 trees, with over 50 varieties among them.

This site shares information on a selection of our campus trees, through the Marshall University Arboretum Project. An Arboretum is a plot of land or botanical garden devoted to trees and/or shrubs, used for study and display. As we progress on this project, with the help of students & staff, more information will be made available. For more information about trees native to our region, visit: http://www.arborday.org/trees/whattree/easterntrees.cfm.
