In 2013 UNMC applied for, and for the first time, was granted Tree Campus USA designation from the Arbor Day Foundation.
Each year, an internal committee made of faculty, students, staff, Grounds, and community members and a certified arborist review the campus tree plan, set goals, track expenditures, complete and Student Service Learning Project, and plan an Arbor Day observance as part of completing the Tree Campus USA application for the following year.
We are proud to have received Tree Campus USA designation and will continue to pursue this honor each year while sustaining our community forest and educating individuals on the importance of trees.
