Welcome Class of 2018

Welcome to the Class of 2018, returning ‘Fords, faculty and staff.

The Arboretum invites all 18s to assist in planting your Freshman tree.  This year an Okame Cherry will be planted in your honor by the playground on Leeds green.  The time for planting is 9:30am, Thursday August 28th.

The Arboretum staff will again plant themselves in the DC for its 27th Annual Freshman plant giveaway and plant sale. You will see us there Tuesday through Thursday, September 2,3,4 th from 9am-2pm. All 1st years will receive a free house (dorm) plant.  We will again have larger plants for faculty, staff and students to purchase for $12.00.

You’ll see the Arboretum and Grounds crew out mowing, weeding, planting trees, raking leaves and hopefully not shovelling snow !   Be sure to say , “Hello”.

Enjoy a few images from the previous year and you’ll see what a wonderful treasure Haverford is.
