East Georgia earns 2020 Tree Campus Higher Education recognition


East Georgia State College (EGSC) was recently recognized as a 2020 Tree Campus Higher Education institution. Tree Campus Higher Education, a national program launched in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation, honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation. This is the fourth time EGSC has received this recognition.

To obtain this distinction, East Georgia State College met the five core standards for effective

campus forest management, including establishment of a tree advisory committee, evidence of a campus tree care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance, and the sponsorship of student service-learning projects.

“East Georgia has been a proud member of the Tree Campus Higher Education community for several years now. Our beautiful setting, with natural areas characteristic of this region, is ideal for this sort of recognition. We hope that this recognition will enhance appreciation of our natural beauty among East Georgia’s staff, students, and faculty, and by the community at large,” said Dr. John Cadle, Swainsboro Campus Coordinator.
