A Tree City/Campus/Line Recognition Ceremony will take place on March 29 in Albany, New York.
The University earned the distinction by meeting five core standards for a sustainable campus: Establishment of 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.
“If ever there was a time for trees, now is that time. Communities worldwide are facing issues with air quality, water resources, personal health and well-being, and energy use,” said Lauren Weyers, program coordinator for the Arbor Day Foundation.
“As a result of your commitment to effective urban forest management, Fordham is helping to provide a solution to these global challenges.”
