    • Goals of the webcast: Learn how Tree Campus USA recognition can help your campus build a high-impact campus forestry program and meet campus sustainability goals
    • Learn about the Tree Campus USA standards
    • Hear a case study on a Massachusetts college, including  their experience becoming a Tree Campus USA and the benefits they have observed from their participation
    • Learn about the support the DCR Urban and Community Forestry program can offer your campus throughout the application process
    • Have your questions answered by staff from the Arbor Day Foundation, DCR Urban and Community Forestry, and the College of the Holy Cross.

    Tree Campus USA is a free, national program created in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation, and sponsored by Toyota, to honor colleges and universities for effective campus forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals. Hundreds of colleges and universities, nationwide, have achieved the title by meeting the five standards of Tree Campus USA: maintaining a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance, and student service-learning project.
