Plant a part of W.Va. State University history with oak seedlings


The extension service at West Virginia State University is inviting West Virginians to plant a part of state history by planting oak tree seedlings grown from the acorns of trees on the university’s historic campus at Institute. 

Extension Agent Liz Moss said the initiative was created to help spread heirloom species planted long ago at the historic school near Charleston, West Virginia. 

“Last spring, several of our campus oaks had to be removed due to oak wilt," Moss said. 

“Those acorns have now sprouted into seedlings and are ready to be planted, which means you can purchase and plant a part of state history.”
