"We're starting a story that the Arboretum will tell about itself," said Kim Steiner, director of the Arboretum. He expressed appreciation to George Biemesderfer for contributing the white oak. The white oak was chosen because it is indigenous to the area and because it has a long life span. White oaks were part of the Pennsylvania forest before the first settlers arrived, he said.
