An important function of an arboretum is to showcase large, spreading shade trees planted for the benefit of future generations. This collection was established in 1982 with new trees being added on a regular basis. Specimens include oak, maple, hackberry, walnut, tulip tree, hickory and elm. In 1997, several trees were planted here to celebrate the Boone County Sesquicentennial.
