Arbor Day Tree Planting

The Georgia College Grounds Department celebrated Georgia Arbor Day and the National Arbor Day by planting almost 4,000 trees across campus this spring.  Over a dozen student organizations helped plant the trees, involving hundreds of students, staff, and faculty volunteers.

In support of the Tree Campus USA designation, the Grounds Department encourages the re-forestation of our open spaces.  Trees provide numerous amenities, including shade, storm water mitigation, wildlife habitat, and scenic views.

To take part in future tree plantings, please contact the Grounds Department and ask about how to get involved!
