Cameron University once again earns designation as Tree Campus USA®

Cameron University has again earned designation as a Tree Campus USA®. The 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.

In earning the distinction, Cameron met five core standards established by the Arbor Day Foundation. The standards are: maintaining a campus tree advisory committee, maintaining a goal-oriented campus tree care plan that is specific to Cameron University, demonstrating evidence of dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, holding an Arbor Day observance, and promoting and sponsoring student service-learning projects related to the campus tree program.

"Trees not only play a vital role in the environment but also in our daily lives,” says Dan Lambe, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Having trees on college and university campuses is a great way to show a commitment to students and faculty’s overall wellbeing.”
