A rare American elm tree, which survived the Dutch elm disease that destroyed 75 percent of the species during the 20th century, sits at the edge of Mathews Garden by the UK Law School building. A proposed Law School expansion would destroy the garden and tree, which UK biologist James Krupa thinks may be the last American elm on campus. Photo by Tom Eblen | teblen@herald-leader.com
