Clarence E Lewis Landscape Arboretum

The six-acre arboretum serves as an instructional site for horticulture students and a source of ideas on the complimentary use of plants and hardscape for visitors. A landscape horticulturist and professor emeritus in the MSU Department of Horticulture, Clarence Lewis said, “Let our imagination run a bit, don’t just concentrate on the ground, look up to enjoy what is overhead, look through the foliage, the canopies, look to the area beyond, see the patterns, the pictures, the twisting and turning of the branches…. Remember that trees can do so many things in a garden…. Remember trees are for you!” [ info ]
