Texas State University has been recognized as a “Tree Campus USA” by the non-profit Arbor Day Foundation.
The university will mark the occasion on Nov. 30 with a 10 a.m. tree-planting at the Speck Parking Garage near Holland Street. A total of 71 trees from the Texas Forest Service will be planted on campus during the event, which is free and open to the public.
The university selected the tree species to be planted based on their afinity with local climate and soil conditions.
The goal of the Tree Campus USA program is to honor college campuses and nearby community leaders for promoting healthy urban forest management and environmental stewardship.
