Seven new trees to be planted in Auburn University’s Samford Park

Auburn University's Facilities Management Landscape Services Department will plant seven new oak trees in Samford Park Jan. 17-19. The plan calls for the installation of three white oaks, three scarlet oaks and a willow oak.

"We are planting these trees to create additional shaded areas and to begin growing a canopy that will one day replace what is lost by older trees within the park," said University Arborist Alex Hedgepath. "There are no plans to remove the older trees at this time as this planting is a proactive approach to ensure a canopy is in place for the future." [Read more]
