Seedlings Initiate
Long befqre there was such a thing as Arbor Day,
more than 90 years ago, a small group of young men at the
University, spurred on by the barren prairie that sur
rounded them, planted a few burr oak and American elm
Two of them still stand this Arbor Day and around
them thousands of other trees.
While no one will say just how many kinds or species
of trees or shrubs exist on the campuses of the Univer
sity, there is general agreement that one would have to
travel many miles to find such a wide variety in such a
small space.
Landscape architect at the University, Chester B. Bill
ings, has a tentative list which includes more than 125 rec
ognizable species.
Number of Species
"I doubt if anybody here could tell you the exact num
ber of species, or the exact number of trees without a
whale of an effort," Billings explained.
There are very rare trees such as the Kentucky Cof
feetree and those with such exotic names as the Goldrein
tree, the Maidenhairtree, the Peking Cotoneaster and the
Chinese Pagodatree.
Planted on the University campus are species of trees
which have not changed in form for millions of years. An
example is the Glnko, the heritage of-which can be traced
by scientists back through millions of years of prehistoric
time. The leaves of the Ginko today are almost exactly

Not Suitable
Trees on the campus that ordinarily should not be
grown in Nebraska for most purposes include the Eastern
(American) Larch and those whose life span is very short
including the Black (Lombardy) Poplar. Those with long
life include the Medis Sequoia. You name it and the Uni
versity probably has it, has tried it, will someday try it.
"We even have some varieties of elm, oak and Cot
tonwood that have cross-bred themselves to the point where
an authority might not be able to identify and classify cor
rectly," Billings said.
Nebraska residents are particularly fortunate in that
they can get expert opinion and counsel in the selection of
trees and tree care from the Extension Service at the Uni
versity and the various departments of College of Agri
culture including the departments of entomology, horti
culture, agronomy and botany.
In preparing a list of known species of shrubs and trees
on the two campuses Billings said that they are not neces
sarily for various reasons, good for the climate and soil of
Anyone wishing to plant some of the more rare species
should make a preliminary check with the University Ex
