Long Description:
Morrison is a small town of about 730 residents in Noble County. These citizens obviously care about nature and have provided land for this nice area. It is located on Woolsey Avenue (Main Street), North of Highway 64.

Websites for the arboretum report "The arboretum's plantings include Acer truncatum, Aesculus pavia, Betula nigra, Cercis canadensis, Celtis occidentalis, Chamaecyparis nootkatensis, Fraxinus pennsylvanica, Ginkgo biloba, Ilex 'Nellie R. Stevens', Juniperus virginiana, Magnolia grandiflora, Metasequoia glyptostroboides, Morus alba 'Chaparral', Nyssa sylvatica, Platanus x acerifolia, Quercus muehlenbergii, Quercus nigra, Quercus shumardii, Taxodium distichum, and Ulmus pumila."

The arboretum and botanical garden was sponsored by the Recreational Trails Program of the Department of Agriculture and the Morrison Tree Board. The wide open area has a paved walking trail around the perimeter, a nice wood gazebo, and some dedicated tree plantings. We noted a nice butterfly sculpture too.
