For the next couple of weeks, trees across the Wake Forest University campus will be sporting yellow tree tags. Some of the tags offer the calculated value of ecosystem services that the trees provide. Others offer the general positive benefits of trees in our landscape. Others are quotes collected from authors and figureheads about the incalculable value of our campus trees.
Celebrate Arbor Day and Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish New Year for Trees, at the Barn and the surrounding cross country trails. The event will feature a tree planting ceremony, a cleanup of the woods around the trails, and a cookout with grass-fed beef and veggie burgers. Register to participate and receive a Cloud Organic Earth Week t-shirt.
This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Sustainability, WFU Athletics, Landscape Services, Resident Life & Housing, and Campus Recreation.
