Arbor Day Foundation Names LSU a 2012 Tree Campus USA

 

BATON ROUGE – LSU is a Tree Campus USA for the first time, the Arbor Day Foundation has announced.
Tree Campus USA is a national program created in 2008 to honor colleges and universities for effective campus forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals.
“Achieving recognition as a Tree Campus USA is an important component in the overall management of the Urban Forest at LSU,” said Fred Fellner, assistant director of LSU Landscape Services. “The size and value of the campus forest, both in literal and perceptive terms, is enormous. The trees are recognized world over and are a signature element at LSU.
“The Tree Campus designation with associated requirements provides a framework for professional observation and care, reporting of planting and removals, disaster response and mitigation, and communication and education. The Arbor Day Foundation is a premier, long standing organization which embodies the Tree Campus focus. This focus is consistent with the mission of Landscape Services.”
