Campus Landscaping Update
Arborist consultants have labeled each of the more than 2,000 trees on campus and determined the health of each one. Two-thirds of the trees are healthy; one-third are diseased or dying. As trees deteriorate and become less structurally sound, they present a safety hazard to students, faculty and staff. For instance, the trees removed from the L and S Quads were in the final stages of their life cycles and were declining in health.
The replacement trees across campus are native and/or drought-tolerant species with limited water needs. The water still required will be provided through a state-of-the-art irrigation system, resulting in far less waste. This is in alignment with the college's commitment to comprehensive environmental sustainability and minimizing the use of resources. Contact Campus Landscape Committee member Larry Bloom at ext. 8978 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
