As part of the 2017 Arbor Day celebration, the John Bartram Arboretum at Kendal at Oberlin in partnership with the city of Oberlin took part in a memorial tree planting at Westwood Cemetery. The bur oak planted was to honor the early planners and founders of Kendal at Oberlin. “It was an educational experience attending the tree planting,” CEO Barbara Thomas said. “Listening to our city representatives and volunteers, it’s refreshing to see Oberlin welcoming knowledgeable individuals who love trees and working to make Oberlin more beautiful.”
