This week, contractors working on the campus pedestrian walkway removed the trees lining the walkway to the Havener Center entrance. The trees, little leaf linden trees, are a popular food for Japanese beetles and had been infested. Their replacement, however, is part of the campus’s landscaping master plan. As part of the master plan, nearly twice the number of trees will be planted outside the Havener Center and along the new pedestrian walkway. Crews will plant a variety of trees that were selected for their seasonal presentation. Planting a variety of trees will help avoid devastation in future years if disease strikes one variety. Varieties to be planted include, bald cypress, Carolina silverbell, white birch, American yellowwood, maple, honey locust and three varieties of oak.
