Tree Campus Higher Education
The University of Illinois Chicago is among the few universities that participate in the Tree Campus Higher Education program, which promotes effective tree management, campus community involvement, and nature connectivity among faculty members and students through forestry efforts. Tree Campus Higher Education is a national program sponsored by Arbor Day Foundation that assists universities and colleges nationwide in establishing and sustaining campus forests. To achieve annual recognition, UIC must meet the five Tree Campus Higher Education standards, including tree planting events, tree research (“treesearch” if you will), and tree-related internships.
