RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- With the continued growth at the University of Nevada, preserving its history is a top priority.

After the demolition of the Getchell Library, five red maple trees were saved and this weekend and replanted outside Lawlor Events Center. In 1987, the entire university campus and the quad were designated as a Nevada State Arboretum.

University officials say that in the end, the effort is well worth it to transplant the trees. Demolition and removal of the Getchell Library was completed in February, marking phase one of construction for the new Pennington Student Achievement Center. Official construction of the new building is scheduled to start mid-summer.
