Bryn Mawr Named a “Tree Campus USA” for Third Year

Posted March 11th, 2013 at 5:11 pm.

The Arbor Day Foundation has named Bryn Mawr College a 2013 Tree Campus USA in honor of its commitment to effective community forestry management. This is the third year of recognition for the College, which has more than 3,600 trees on campus.

Tree Campus USA is a national program launched in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation. It honors colleges and universities for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation.

Bryn Mawr achieved the designation as a Tree Campus USA by meeting the required five core standards for sustainable campus forestry: a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and the sponsorship of student service-learning projects.
