Did you know that among our amazing trees here on campus, there is one that was planted on the very first day of classes at Royal Roads University?

It is likely that many of you have passed it before, multiple times, as this linden tree is just off of the path coming from Parking Lot 3 to Hatley Castle. Below is a picture of it taken in August 2014.

The top image of this post is of the ceremonial tree planting on July 8, 1996. A couple of the people in the photograph have been identified, but do you know any of them? If so, please send an email to the RRU Archives office or telephone 250.391.2600 extension 4122, and we will add the information to the image file.
