Tree Campus

The Arbor Day Foundation is honoring the University of Pennsylvania for Penn’s commitment to ensuring a healthy urban campus environment in University City.

A tree-planting celebration, co-hosted by the Arbor Day Foundation, Penn’s Green Campus Partnership, and corporate sponsor Toyota, is planned to commemorate this great achievement. Thirty trees will be planted in the center of campus on historic College Green, with the help of Penn faculty, staff and students at noon on Wednesday, April 7.

Be a part of Penn’s recognition as the inaugural class of Tree Campus USA schools! Volunteer to help plant trees, or simply attend to show your appreciation for our beautiful campus landscape development, highly regarded for its cohesive, sustainable, and well maintained design.  

Please contact Sarah-Jane Littleford in Facilities and Real Estate Services at sarahjan@upenn.edu to register as a volunteer by Friday, April 2 or for further information.
