This Greenleaf Japanese Maple was planted by Governor Tom McCall in late 1973 or early 1974 during his second term of office. McCall is remembered for many enviornmental achievements, such as the "Beach Bill" which granted the state government the power to zone Oregon’s beaches, thus protecting them from private development, and the "Bottle Bill" which was the nation’s first mandatory bottle-deposit law, designed to decrease litter in Oregon.
