Like trees? You can try to win some at the Wooster Scarlet, Gray and Green Fair April 22. Folks at the Secrest Arboretum exhibit will be drawing names hourly for people to win native trees, including scarlet oak and Ohio buckeye. Why plant trees? For their good looks, sure, and for their quantifiable, for generations to come, green in more ways than one social and environmental benefits, wrote CFAES tree guru Jim Chatfield in a 2011 Akron Beacon Journal column. The arboretum (Latin for “plantation of trees”) is on the Wooster campus of CFAES’s research arm, OARDC, the fair’s host. (Photo: Quercus coccinea, 1819, public domain, via Wikimedia Commons.)
