New Pin Oak Donated to Mont Alto

A 40 foot tall Pin Oak (Quercus palustris) was donated by Alumnus Jerry Klancer to the Penn State Mont Alto arboretum. The tree was planted in the field in front of the Police Services Building this past Tuesday. This is a great site as pin oak likes wet, clay soils. Thanks also to Davey Tree Company for transporting and planting the tree with their tree spade.
