Wake Forest Earns 2013 Tree Campus USA RecognitionMarch 18, 2014
Wake Forest was recently recognized by Mary Sweeney, the Program Manager of the Arbor Day Foundation with 2013 Tree Campus USA recognition.
Tree Campus USA, a national program launched in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota, honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation.
To obtain this distinction, Wake Forest University has met the five core standards for sustainable campus forestry required by Tree Campus USA, including establishment of a tree advisory committee, evidence of a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and the sponsorship of student service-learning projects.
