Environmental project leads to Tree Campus honor


A project that started in Dr. Allison Bailey’s environmental communications class at UNG’s Gainesville Campus evolved into an effort by students to identify and map the trees on all five of UNG’s campuses.

These efforts earned UNG the 2017 Tree Campus USA recognition by the Arbor Day Foundation. This is the second time UNG has earned a Tree Campus USA designation, which honors colleges and universities for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation.
