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

We have a Campus Tree Advisory Committee of 2 students, 2 professors, 2 staff members and 1 community member. They work closely with 7 state officials, research professors and private consultants.
Our Tree Care Plan consists of tree care and protection plans, damage assessment, prohibited practices, arboricultural terms and communication strategies.
The College spends $35,000 every year on tree care and plantings. The grounds department monitors gypsy moths on campus by counting caterpillars. Student workers help count and document the data. Grounds also helps with first year student orientation and partners with the OARDC with planting trees and landscape maintenance.
