The Tulane University Uptown Campus was recognized in 2009 as a Tree Campus USA for its commitment to environmental stewardship and the wide variety of beautiful and well-managed campus trees. A tree planting event sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation was held on November 6, 2009, when 45 new trees of diverse native species were planted by students and staff in campus areas of high student activity. There are approximately 750 trees in the campus collection. Tulane will vie annually for the Tree Campus USA distinction by maintaining its arboreal efforts.
