Tree Campus USA
The Tree Campus USA program recognizes colleges and universities that effectively manage their campus trees in coordinating with the community to establish and maintain and foster healthy urban forests, and engage their students in service-learning forestry projects. In order to remain such, the college or university must meet the following standards every year:
- Standard 1 – Campus Advisory Committee
- Standard 2 – Campus Tree Care Plan
- Standard 3 – Campus Tree Program with Dedicated Annual Expenditures
- Standard 4 – Arbore Day Observance
- Standard 5 – Service Learning Project
St. Mary’s College of Maryland has been recognized as a Tree Campus USA College by the Arbor Day Foundation since 2012.
