SDS Donation Honors UW-Stevens Point Conservation Efforts


02.12.2020


The Pin Oak Tree that was located on the southeast corner of the Dreyfus Center was considered to be the world champion of its kind, until being surpassed by a tree in Michigan. The massive northern pin oak was 92 feet tall with an 80-foot-wide crown and a circumference of 4.4 feet and had been growing since 1894. The tree became infected with oak wilt in 2017, after it lost a limb in a thunderstorm. The tree was cut down to keep the disease from spreading.

 

The wood harvested from the tree was originally suggested for use in the DeBot Center remodeling project but was determined to be impractical. Instead, images of the tree were used to create the large wall panels in the Lower Level corridor outside of the Convenience Store.

 

To commemorate this tree and recognize the work done by the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point to preserve and enhance the environment, SDS has made a donation to the National Forest Foundation on behalf of UW Stevens Point. The gift will plant 200 trees in support of the goal to plant 50 million trees in the National Forest to support wildfire recovery, improve water quality, mitigate climate change and support wildlife habitat.
