Illinois State named Tree Campus USA
For the third straight year, ISU has earned Tree Campus USA recognition for its dedication to campus forestry management and environmental stewardship.
“Many who have walked the Illinois State University campus know how beautiful it is,” Superintendent of Grounds Mike O’Grady said.
He praised the hard work staff perform daily, enabling Illinois State to meet the five core standards of tree care and community engagement needed to receive Tree Campus USA status. The national program exists through the Arbor Day Foundation.
Tree Campus USA is a national program that honors colleges and universities for promoting healthy management of their campus forests, and for engaging the community in environmental stewardship. Arbor Day Foundation is supported by a grant from Toyota.
