Tree loss at MU’s historic Francis Quadrangle

Five pin oaks will be removed from MU’s main quadrangle. Here are three different reports on the loss of the trees. The trees are 60 years old, but should have lived until 80 to 100 years, but the soil and watering to support the grass led to the early death of the trees, according to the reports.

Don’t like MU spending money on trees instead of your favorite cause? The news release states the costs for the replacement of the trees will come from a special Mizzou Botanic Garden fundraising campaign. The trees will be replaced with native oak species.
