Today's Program Business Meeting

Rotary Last Week

Bob Jones an agronomist at West Point provided information about three tree trails on the Academy grounds (Trophy Point, the West Point Cemetery, and the Central Area). Bob has been at West Point for 29 years and during this time developed a wealth of knowledge about the many different species of trees on the grounds. He noted that many of the trees had been donated over the years and some came from different parts of the world. Fortunately they survive because they have acclimated to the environment and received periodic care and management from Bob.


We were treated with a booklet titled Trees of the West Point Cemetery, a self guided walking tour worth taking.


The audience was also informed about the West Points inventory of trees how it was developed and their marking with numbered metal tags.
