OP-T2-21: Tree Campus USA
UVM Physical Plant Department
Is the institution recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation's Tree Campus USA program?:
A brief description of the institution's Tree Campus USA program:
In January the University of Vermont was recognized as a Tree Campus USA. After Middlebury College, we are the second institution of higher education in Vermont to receive this distinction. In order to become a Tree Campus, UVM met the five core standards for effective campus forest management: a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and student service-learning.
