Tree Campus USA is a title recognizing colleges and universities across the U.S.A. that effectively manage their campus trees to develop healthy, urban forests, while also engaging the student population through service-learning and forestry efforts. SCU has been a Tree Campus USA every year since 2016 through 2020. We host an Arbor Day event each year and several data collection sessions to monitor SCU’s trees through a program called Tree Trackers.
