Relocated Oak Tree Marks First Spring in its New Home


Last fall, as part of the ongoing Ross construction project, the school hired experts to move a 65-foot, 250-year-old oak tree from the north side of the Ross campus to a new site near the corner of Tappan and Monroe streets.

This spring, the tree fully leafed out in its new location. Follow-up care includes regular monitoring, irrigation, and fertilization.
