NORMAL, Ill. (AP) - Illinois State University has once again secured a national honor for its tree friendliness.
It's been designated as a Tree Campus USA. That's a title bestowed by the Arbor Day Foundation for colleges that promote healthy management of their campus forests.
The Normal-based school said in a Thursday statement that it had to meet multiple criteria for the designation. That includes demonstrating it has a campus tree advisory committee and a campus tree-care plan.
The Arbor Day Foundation launched the Tree Campus USA program in 2008.
