Among the younger trees on the Agnes Scott College campus are some that have been planted as memorials and others that honor long-serving members of the staff and faculty. Look for the plaques that mark these trees as you tour the arboretum.
David D’Ambrosio is director of piano studies and accompanying at Agnes Scott. His tree is an American hornbeam, sometimes called ironwood (Carpinus caroliniana). It’s located along the path leading to the steps of Letitia Pate Evans Dining Hall.
