When I found out that a new perimeter drain had to be installed around the geography building (built 1925), I knew that the work was going to have a significant impact on existing planting.  Fortuantely, we were able to relocate several of the specimen Rhododendrons located nearest the building.  With expert and careful work by gardening staff, the plants are now living in a number of other areas on campus (e.g. the north side of the Wesbrook building).  Above is an image of staff engaged in the digging and moving of one of these Rhodies.
