Dawes Arboretum is located ~ 5.5 miles south of Newark, Ohio. Oct 29 was warm and breezy, with scattered clouds and an ideal day for pictures:All the ash trees in the woods are dead, but a few open grown trees remain. The one person I asked did not know if they had been treated or not. Looking up the oak alley in the SE corner of the Arboretum. It consists of mainly swamp white, and overcup oaks, with a handful of swamp chestnut oaks (Mislabeled as Q. Montana) and red oaks. One swamp white had died, and I ring counted it to the early 1940's. Looking up at the largest swamp chestnut oak on the property. It was noticeably larger than the other growing in the alley, presumably because its position at the base of the hill made for better growing conditions (the embankment visible on the right hand side of the picture holds back a small lake).
