Tree Care Advisory Committee
Implementation of the university’s tree care plan is advised by a formal standing committee sponsored by the Executive Vice President. The Committee advises the university on proposed modifications to campus open space and landscaping to insure high aesthetic and functional quality; develop and maintain a list of satisfactory and desired species of trees; encourage the use of an appropriate variety of plant materials in new plantings; and make recommendations on landscape renovations and maintenance. Information about the composition of the group and how the group is governed is available in the Tree Care Plan.
