Remembering the Davidge Elm on Arbor DayWink, Tara (2021-04-30)The post honors a long standing Elm Tree, known as the Davidge Elm, on UMB's Campus. The tree stood from the early days of the campus until it was cut down, due to poor health, in 2001. Today a younger Elm, grown from the a Davidge Elm seed, stands in the same location outside of Davidge Hall.
