ASU Tree Campus USA

Committee purpose:

The Arboretum at Arizona State University was designated as a TREE CAMPUS USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation on November 7, 2008.
One of the requirements of this designation is to establish a Tree Advisory Committee to oversee the planting of new trees and inventory all tree species on ASU Main campus. 
The committee's secondary purpose is to raise awareness of the arboretum and increase the visibility of its trees and plants for student and teacher education. The committee will have students, faculty, facility management, and community members. The committee meets four times per year; please email us if you would like to serve for a one-year term.
