The Select Sustainable Tree Trust has selected the University of Georgia to receive a $1 million tree donation to 're-green' and impact the University campus with large scale, sustainable shade trees.
Established by Select Trees, the leading grower of large sustainable shade trees in the southeast, the Select Sustainable Tree Trust exists to create significant long-term positive impact in the urban environment. With this donation, the Trust will provide more than 300 sustainable shade trees from Select Trees - most ranging in size from 4 to 6 inches in trunk diameter and 15-25 feet tall - each year to the university, which is known for its historic tree canopy and arboretum on its main campus in the heart of Athens, over the next ten years.
