Arsenal Oak Celebration and Dedication

Friday, April 29, at 1 p.m.

In front of the Benet House, Summerville Campus

The famed Arsenal Oak was a longtime symbol of Augusta’s roots and the rich history of its university. The 250-year-old oak was cut down in 2004 after succumbing to disease, but not before its acorns were gathered and sprouted by arborist George Barrett and nurtured into maturity by local community member Rob Pavey. Now, two decades later, we will celebrate the replanting of one of Pavey’s trees, descended from the original Arsenal Oak.
