Long Description:

IN MEMORY OF
GAIL LYON MASON
1948 - 1995

"There's Nothing Worth the Wear of Winning,
But Laughter and the Love of Friends."

The University prides itself in its large collection of trees on campus and has created an online tree atlas that visitors can follow in discovering where each tree exists. There's a part of the atlas that highlights the dedicated trees on campus and reads:

The map symbol of a circle or triangle with a dot in the center represents a tree that was donated to the university. Class trees, annual University Day plantings, memorials, and retirement commemorations are among these donations. From 1976 to 1983, a donation program known as “100 Years, 100 Trees” was organized and operated by the University Women’s Club in commemoration of Oregon’s 1976 centennial. This program added about 450 trees to campus, of which 326 survive today.


This particular tree is mapped under the tree identifier symbol 3126 PRSEH in Zone 6.

Location of the tree: University of Oregon, south of Oregon Hall

Type of tree: Japanese Flowering Cherry
