Tree huggers


For the fourth year in a row, UGA received Tree Campus USA recognition from the Arbor Day Foundation for its promotion of a healthy campus tree management. About 10,000 trees adorn the campus. In 2013, the grounds department planted 75 trees through a partnership with the Select Sustainable Tree Trust, along with 45 others planted on Arbor Day and about another 25 during the year. About 75 more trees, provided by the tree trust, will be added this year. The main trees on campus are mapped for easy identification by the horticulture department in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
