2012 Arbor Day Grounds Services Tribute

To recognize of the diligence and care of the UA Facilities Management Grounds Service, 3 Parkinsonia x ‘Desert Museum’ (palo verde) trees were planted in the Campus Health Courtyard. The Campus Arboretum presented a plaque to them that was then placed with the tree for public display. The day of the event, we received a timely letter notifying us of our qualification as a Tree Campus USA for the third year in a row (read the news). The Grounds Staff deserve much of the credit for this national recognition and were pleased to learn the impact of their efforts are noticed!

The tree installations on this site completed the renovation of the landscape initiated by the (PLS 354) Sustainable Horticulture class. The undergraduate students, with assistance from Campus Health Promotions, helped with design and planting bed installation. on site. See the plans and students at work!
