About Us:

The Gerald D. Coort Memorial Arboretum on the Tennessee Tech campus was officially dedicated on March 7, 1997 (Arbor Day). It encompasses all of the grounds from South Hall to Derryberry Hall bordering on Dixie Avenue. The Cookeville Tree  Board, of which Coorts was a member, proposed the memorial, and Tennesse Tech and the Board followed up with the plan to establish the arboretum.
