Tennessee Wesleyan College has earned 2014 Tree Campus USA recognition from the Arbor Day Foundation.
The program recognizes colleges and universities that maintain healthy trees and encourage conservation efforts on campus.
The program requires five core standards for sustainable campus forestry, including an established tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated monies for the campus tree program, observance of Arbor Day and the sponsorship of student service-learning projects.
"The Tree Advisory Committee is a student-led committee," Mike Ingram, TWC director of physical plant services. "Their work this last year enabled us to receive this achievement. They planned and participated in Arbor Day and completed a service-learning project with Dr. Allen Moore."
