Summary of the project and its significance to Oregon’s public
Oregon’s Grove of the States is located at the French Prairie Rest Area (southbound I-5 at Milepost 281), near Wilsonville. The grove is believed to be the oldest arboretum of state trees in the US and was originally a collection of trees from 53 US states and territories. The concept for the grove was conceived and implemented by former Oregon Attorney General Robert Thornton in the mid-1960s. For more information, connect to the Grove of the States Restoration webpage.
