Spartanburg, S.C. — The Arbor Day Foundation has honored the University of South Carolina Upstate as a 2010 Tree Campus USA University for its dedication to campus forestry management and environmental stewardship.
This is the third consecutive year USC Upstate has been named a Tree Campus USA University. The campus was the first public university in the state to achieve the honor, and is one of four universities in the state to be named a Tree Campus USA.
“The Tree Campus USA program will have a long-lasting impact at the University of South Carolina Upstate as it engages college students and local citizens to plant trees and create healthier communities for people to enjoy for decades to come,” said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “The university will benefit from exceptional tree-care practices on campus as it works with tree-care professionals in the community to improve the tree canopy in Spartanburg.”
