Purpose of this Web Site

The purpose of this website is to be a central place for geographic information about Medford Leas. This includes links to projects and planning information, documentation and educational material. The initial impetus for this system came from a desire to map all the significant trees on the Medford and Lumberton campuses. The Medford campus features landscaped grounds, courtyard and patio gardens, wildflower meadows, recreational areas, and natural woodlands that constitute the Lewis W. Barton Arboretum. In addition to the 168-acre Medford campus, the 88-acre Lumberton campus is an extension of the arboretum.

Arboretum Trees
