Roy DeBoer, the former Chairman of the Landscape Architecture Department at Cook College, designed this collection in 1958. The plants are grouped by genus around the great sunken lawn, with a large Weeping White Pine serving as the focal point.

Highlights include wonderful examples of Weeping White Pine (Pinus strobus 'Pendula'), Sargent's Weeping Hemlock (Tsuga Canadensis 'Sargentii') and a host of Cedars, Pines, Spruces and Firs.
