A Bit of Hedging

The Dawes Arboretum has a unique hedge. It is arborvitae so that is not unusual. It is the shear length of the hedge that makes it unique---and it is hard to imagine the team that is required to shear this hedge.

We climbed this observation tower to view the hedge from one end.

The shrubs spell out Dawes Arboretum over almost half a mile.

The grounds were part of the flight pattern into Columbus and the Dawes took advantage of that to advertise their arboretum.
