Tree Campus USA, a national program launched in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation with generous support from Toyota, honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of environmental stewardship.

The first event was held October 3, at the University of Colorado-Boulder, with the second scheduled today at Los Angeles Valley College, the first community college in California to participate in Tree Campus USA. Subsequent events are slated for Delaware State University in Dover, DE; LaSalle University in Philadelphia, PA; and Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA.

"Participation in the Tree Campus USA program and tree planting events like these is a terrific opportunity for service-oriented and environmentally-conscious students," said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. "We're excited to continue working with Toyota to help spread the spirit of stewardship to young people across America."

"At Toyota, we believe in empowering individuals to make our communities cleaner and greener," said Patricia Salas Pineda, group vice president of National Philanthropy and the Toyota USA Foundation at Toyota Motor North America. "We look forward to working with students and staff of diverse backgrounds this fall and in the coming months as even more colleges and universities become a part of Tree Campus USA."

During 2011, the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota helped campuses throughout the country plant 30,000 trees, and Tree Campus USA colleges and universities have invested more than $22 million in campus forest management. More information and a complete list of 2011 campuses are available at arborday.org/TreeCampusUSA.
