A brief description of the institution's Tree Campus USA program:
The Purdue campus was formally established as “The Purdue Arboretum” and was also designated a “Tree Campus USA” by the National Arbor Day Foundation in 2009 and has remained in this status for the past four years. Over 8,000 different species of trees are currently maintained on campus, with an additional 150 new and replacement trees planted annually. The Tree Protection and Trimming Policy govern procedures to protect existing trees and replace those damaged by construction. Efforts are currently underway to identify and eradicate invasive plants on campus.
