The Beech-Maple forest
in Hayes Regional Arboretum, with trees up to 450 years old, is a
remnant of what the early Indiana settlers found on much of this
region's land. Few forests of this caliber remain.
Hayes Regional Arboretum contains approximately 60 acres of old growth forest. In 1998, it was estimated that less than 2,000 acres of old growth forest remained within the state of Indiana.
