Troy University's Alabama campuses awarded Tree Campus USA designation

For the second straight year, all four of Troy University’s campuses in Alabama have been awarded the Tree Campus USA® designation by the Arbor Day Foundation.

The recognition commended the commitment to effective urban forest management for the University’s campuses in Troy, Dothan, Montgomery and Phenix City.

Created in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation, the Tree Campus USA program honors colleges and universities for effective forest management on campus and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals. Troy University achieved the title by meeting Tree Campus USA’s five standards, which include maintaining a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and a student service-learning project. Currently there are 296 campuses across the United States with this recognition.
