Initiative Fractal’s proposed fourth project was to have the 6.5-acre grounds of WBU’s Commandant Commons designated as a campus arboretum. Instead, an alternative solution was devised to develop an unofficial arboretum at Mt. Zion Cemetery instead. As a result, twelve trees of eleven different species have already been planted at the cemetery, and others will be added over time.
The blue rectangle is the originally proposed arboretum site; the green squares are sample locations for the first trees to be planted.
