The National Arbor Day Foundation is accepting applications to the Tree Campus Higher Education program.
This program provides a simple framework for colleges and universities to grow their community forests, achieve national recognition, and create a campus their students and staff are proud of.
Benefits to Becoming Part of This Program
- A commitment to trees can significantly reduce the amount of energy your campus, and community, needs to generate.
- Planting and maintaining trees absorbs carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, mitigating the effects of climate change.
- Green space provides important mental health benefits to students, faculty, and staff, as well as encourages physical activity.
- Involving students in tree-related service-learning projects helps educate the next generation about the importance of caring for the environment.
