UNCG will receive 2011 Tree Campus USA designation as part of Earth Day 2012 festivities on campus Thursday, April 19.

Grounds staff plan to pre-dig two holes in front of Jackson Library, where two trees will be planted. (See earlier story.) UNCG students, staff and faculty will be able to help in planting the trees, Campus Weekly is told.

One tree will be planted around 11 a.m. and the other will be planted around 1 p.m.

A representative from the North Carolina Forest Service is scheduled to present UNCG the 2011 Tree Campus USA award at 12:45 p.m. UNCG will receive the designation for the third year in a row, from the Arbor Day Foundation, for its dedication to campus forestry management and environmental stewardship.
