Dear Fellow Tree-huggers,

The difference between my college campus (Wheaton College, Norton, MA) and
an arboretum is that at an arboretum the trees are labeled with their
scientific names.  I am embarking on a project to label all the trees on
campus with Latin names, common names, family names, and relevant campus
information like "gift of class of 1902."

I would appreciate any advice from folks who have carried out similar
projects.  In particular I am interested in information on what types of
labels to use and how to purchase or make them.  I want these to last for a
long time, so I hope to use high quality materials.

Suggestions on funding sources and ways to incorporate the process or
results of the project into teaching would also be appreciated.

Thank you, Scott
