Urge Your Campus Offials to Make Your Campus a Tree City USA Campus
Write a letter or email to your campus leaders, urging them to apply for Tree Campus USA recognition. Below is a sample you can use for inspiration. It is helpful and more effective to edit in your own experience.
Here’s an Example You Can Use:
Trees make our campus, and our town, a special place to live. They shade our classrooms, our homes, our businesses, and our streets. They clean our air and water, reduce storm water run-off, increase our property values, reduce energy costs, and make our campus greener, safer, and healthier.
The Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree Campus USA program recognizes excellence in campus tree management as well as student and community involvement. This is really an exciting way to raise environmental awareness from the bottom up, engage the community here on campus, and raise our profile for prospective students. You can learn more on how we can make a healthier, greener campus community by visiting the Tree Campus USA Web site at arborday.org/treecampus.
