The McDonald Forest and Peavy Arboretum Maps consist primarily of detailed maps of the Arboretum and Forest prepared from the mid-1930s through early 1940s. The maps document topography, forest site and timber types, and plantings in the Arboretum. Peavy Arboretum and McDonald Forest were established in the 1920s as a teaching laboratory and experimental forest for the forestry students at Oregon State College.
