To celebrate the impact Tree Campus USA is having on college campuses across the United States in its second year, the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota teamed up today (April 30) with students and volunteers from Indiana University Bloomington to plant trees on the school's campus.

IU was one of 74 schools that earned Tree Campus USA recognition in 2009. The Arbor Day Foundation began Tree Campus USA in the fall of 2008 to recognize colleges and universities that practice sound campus forestry. The aim of the program is to honor college campuses and the leaders of surrounding communities for promoting healthy urban forest management and engaging the campus community in environmental stewardship.
