The Arbor Day Celebration is held as part of the University’s 2014 Tree Campus USA® recognition. Tree Campus USA, a national program launched in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota, honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation.
This year's event, which is planned by the University’s Tree Committee and Reynolds Nature Preserve and is open to the public, will feature planting 54 trees, mostly in the area between the Athletics Center and North Lee Street. This year's featured tree is the Swamp Chestnut Oak.
The day will also feature speakers, visits from local school children, tours of the Plants of the Piedmont Trail (located between Spivey Hall, the Music Education Building and Swan Lake), stickers and refreshments for all attendees.
