The University of Iowa has once again been named a Tree Campus USA.

This designation is through the Arbor Day Foundation, and it’s given to universities that demonstrate commitment to managing and protecting their trees.

This marks the fourth year in a row that UI has received this honor. In order to be named a Tree Campus USA, a university must have a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and student service-learning projects.
