A brief description of the institution's Tree Campus USA program:
UNCG was the first university of the University of North Carolina System to receive the Tree Campus USA award, and has been recognized as a Tree Campus USA each year from 2009-2012. UNCG has also applied for a 2013 award.
Tree Campus USA colleges and universities successfully meet five core standards, each of which UNCG has developed programs and policies for:
• Campus Tree Advisory Committee - Peabody Park Preservation Committee.
• Campus Tree Care Plan - updated annually.
• Campus Tree Program with Dedicated Annual Expenditures
• Arbor Day Observance
• Service Learning Project - multiple tree planting and invasive species removal events for students every school year (e.g., http://ure.uncg.edu/prod/news/faculty-staff/arbor-day-every-day/)
