Arbor Day Foundation Tree Planting

The Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota teamed up with students and volunteers from Indiana University Bloomington April 30, 2010, to plant trees on the school's campus. IU was one of 74 schools that earned Tree Campus USA recognition in 2009. The Arbor Day Foundation began Tree Campus USA in the fall of 2008 to recognize colleges and universities that practice sound campus forestry. The aim of the program is to honor college campuses and the leaders of surrounding communities for promoting healthy urban forest management and engaging the campus community in environmental stewardship.
