Frostburg State University held an Arbor Day celebration and recognition of its Tree Campus USA designation, on Wednesday, April 23, the centerpiece of Focus Frostburg, the annual day of learning on sustainability and climate awareness.

The Arbor Day celebration included poetry and music with tree-related themes, planting of a flowering dogwood tree in the clock tower plaza and more native trees planted in the campus Arboretum. This is the third year FSU has held the Arbor Day celebration and the second straight year it has earned Tree Campus USA designation.

FSU achieved the Tree Campus title by meeting Tree Campus USA’s five standards, which include maintaining a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and a student service-learning project. FSU continues to be the only campus in Maryland that has adopted a standard of planting native trees and shrubs. Tree Campus USA is a program of the Arbor Day Foundation and sponsored by Toyota.
