Sixth time the charm: YSU designated Tree Campus USA

PrintWith nearly 2,000 trees on campus, YSU has been named a Tree Campus USA for the sixth consecutive year by the Arbor Day Foundation.

Out of nearly 4,000 universities and colleges nationwide, only 245 achieve Tree Campus USA status for effective campus forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals.

YSU celebrated the honor this spring by dedicating two newly planted American Elm trees outside the rear entrance of the Veterans Resource Center on Wick Avenue.

The trees were dedicated in recognition of the Men’s Garden Club of Youngstown, which donated and planted them as part of its American Elm Project. The club has planted American Elms at nine other public property locations around Mahoning and Trumbull counties.
