Tree Campus USA

Oklahoma State University is Officially a “Tree Campus USA” Campus

Tree Campus USA Award

I write to congratulate Oklahoma State University for achieving recognition as a 2011 Tree Campus USA®. Tree Campus USA, a national program launched in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota Motor North America, Inc., honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation.

To obtain this recognition, Oklahoma State University has met the five core standards for sustainable campus forestry required by Tree Campus USA, including establishment of a tree advisory committee, evidence of 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. Your entire campus community should be proud of this sustained commitment to environmental stewardship.

Again, congratulations. Your diligence in improving the environment and quality of life at Oklahoma State University contributes to a healthier, more sustainable world for us all.
