Tree Campus USA Service Learning Day

October 15, 2015


Volunteer Sign-Up Form

Each October, UAH celebrates its Tree Campus USA certification with a service learning day. Students, faculty, staff, and the Huntsville community come together to plant trees and learn about ways to promote and protect the campus forest. 

This October, we will begin a new project called Street Trees by planting 15 new trees along John Wright Drive on the south side of campus. There are many benefits of planting trees along streets including:

  • Reduced traffic speeds
  • Safer and more pleasant walking environments
  • Reduced storm water runoff and flooding potential
  • Reduced harm from tailpipe emissions
  • Lower ozone and lower urban air temperatures
  • Reduced road rage
  • Longer pavement life
  • Aesthetic value
