The tree was purchased by Patricia Joyner and planted by Kimberley Maher, Naomi O'Neal, Jim Smith and Katie DiCristina in honor of the recently retired Grant Matheke, a 35-year employee of the garden. The garden is a program of the School of Natural Resources and Extension and the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station.
