Oklahoma City University Named as Tree Campus USA

Trees add beauty to our surroundings, and through further promotion of tree planting and preservation, we can continue that beauty. That is exactly what Arbor Day does, and the annual event is almost here again.

Part of the Arbor Day celebration is the annual Tree Campus USA award, which recognizes different colleges and universities for their effective efforts in environmental conservation. For two years in a row, Oklahoma City University has been proud to be a part of Tree Campus USA.  It has been chosen due to its accomplishment of the five standards set out by the foundation, which include having a tree advisory committee, a campus tree care plan, annual expenditures for trees, student service-learning projects, and an Arbor Day observance. OCU has a policy that requires the planting of two trees each time one tree is removed for any reason.
