IU trees

Gingko, bald cypress, sassafras, and paw-paw are just a few of the notable species of trees that give Indiana University’s Bloomington campus its “entrancing” appeal. Trees and green spaces have received “great care” ever since the current campus was established, writes Laurie D. Borman. The sprawling tree above, at the edge of Dunn Meadow, north of Indiana Memorial Union, is suspected of being the oldest tree on campus: a bur oak about 180 years old. | Photo by Jeremy Hogan
