Arbor Day group again cites university's tree management

Lanse Fullinwider, Facilities grounds managerThe Arbor Day Foundation has recognized the University of North Texas as a 2012 Tree Campus USA University for its dedication to campus forestry management and environmental stewardship. This marks the fifth consecutive year  that UNT has earned the designation.

Tree Campus USA is a national program that honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy management of their campus forests and for engaging the community in environmental stewardship. Tree Campus USA was launched in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation and is supported by a grant from Toyota.

"It is an honor to continue to be recognized as a Tree Campus USA for the fifth time," said Lanse Fullinwider, Facilities grounds manager. "We continue to improve our environmental and sustainable efforts on campus and there are no more visible reminders of that than the abundance of trees throughout the campus. Trees provide innumerable environmental benefits, and they bring great distinction to our campus."  

 UNT met the required five core standards of tree care and community engagement in order to receive Tree Campus USA status. Those standards are establishing a campus tree advisory committee; having a campus tree-care plan; verification of dedicated annual expenditures on the campus tree-care plan; involvement in an Arbor Day observance; and the institution of a service-learning project aimed at engaging the student body.
