Arbor Day Foundation again cites tree and forestry management

UNT has been recognized for the fourth consecutive year by Tree Campus USA for the university's outstanding commitment to the preservation and care of the trees.

Tree Campus USA is a program in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota. The program was designed to recognize colleges and universities whose campus is dedicated to the proactive management of their trees, and the education of students and the community on urban forestry.

In order to receive the honor of becoming a campus recognized by the Tree Campus USA program, UNT had to comply with the program’s five core standards of sustainable campus forestry.

The five standards of the Tree Campus USA program require existence of:

  1. A Campus Tree Advisory Committee
  2. A Campus Tree Care Plan
  3. A Campus Tree Program with an Annual Expenditures Budget
  4. Observance of Arbor Day
  5. A Service Learning Project

“We’re honored to earn designation as a Tree Campus USA for the fourth year in a row,” said Lanse Fullinwider, right, UNT’s Grounds Manager. “The abundance of trees on our campus is an immediate, visible reminder of UNT’s history of strong environmental programs. Trees provide innumerable environmental benefits, and they bring great distinction to our campus.”

 -Sara Walterscheid, Facilities Student Assistant
