Trees of Renown on the Mt. Holyoke Campus

 
 
 
 
The Reigning Monarch - Copper Beech Tree (2)

Perhaps the singly most popular tree on campus, the Copper Beech is a towering figure on the eastern side of Dwight Memorial. It was planted in 1904 by Asa S. Kinney, the college's botanist, in honor of his daughter's birth. The tree is regarded so highly by alums, students and faculty that adjustments were made to the building extension plans of Dwight.
