Arbor Day Foundation again honors Furman

Trees with Bell Tower in backgroundThe Arbor Day Foundation has recognized Furman University as a 2014 Tree Campus USA® for its dedication to effective urban forest management. Furman has earned the honor seven consecutive years.

Tree Campus USA is a national program created in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation and sponsored by Toyota to honor colleges and universities for effective campus forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals.

To achieve the title, Furman met five required core standards for sustainable campus forestry: maintaining 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.

The Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota have helped campuses throughout the country plant thousands of trees, and Tree Campus USA colleges and universities invested more than $29 million in campus forest management last year.

The Arbor Day Foundation is a nonprofit conservation and education organization of one million members, with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees.
