9th Year in Row for Tree Campus USA Honor
For the ninth year in a row, Penn has been named a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. The Tree Campus USA program recognizes college and university campuses that:
- Effectively manage their campus trees.
- Develop connectivity with the community beyond campus borders to foster healthy, urban forests.
- Strive to engage their student population utilizing service learning opportunities centered on campus, and community, forestry efforts.
Additionally, Penn anticipates an upgrade to a Level II Accredited Arboreta status this summer. The University received Level I Accredited Arboretum status in 2017 for its main West Philadelphia campus.
