Today is National Arbor Day and to note this important day, we share the words of Arbor Day Foundation President Dan Lambe.

The University of Maryland was honored with the 2017 Tree Campus USA®recognition by the Arbor Day Foundation for its commitment to promoting healthy trees and environmental stewardship . This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Tree Campus designation, with UMD making the list each year.
