A brief description of the institution's Tree Campus USA program:

An early adapter, Georgia Tech was among the first tem campuses recognized by the Arbor Foundation's Tree Campus USA program. We have been recognized for 4 years as a Tree Campus USA campus.

Georgia Tech has achieved Tree Campus USA status since the inception of the program in 2008 to 2012-an accomplishment that assures students and administration greater opportunities than they may yet realize!

The Tree Campus USA program is an initiative that sprang from a partnership between the Arbor Day
Foundation and Toyota Motor North America, Inc., to foster the development of the next generation of tree
stewards. The program is designed to award national recognition to college campuses and the leaders of their
surrounding communities for promoting healthy urban forest management and engaging the campus community
in environmental stewardship.
