SUNY NP is a recognized Tree Campus!

Chances are, you’ve heard about trees in the news lately… their connection to mental health, urban heat, filtering air pollution, and capturing carbon. Your campus trees are already working hard to solve some of the most pressing issues facing humanity. Has your campus committed to protecting them and maximizing their benefits? Since 2008, the Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree Campus Higher Education program has offered a simple framework for sound campus forest management, a peer network of sustainability leaders contributing to campus tree efforts, and recognition that captures the attention of your community and administration.

AASHE is the place for you to exchange ideas and connect with other like-minded sustainability leaders. Learn more!
