About Redlands

Tree Campus USA

UoR Quad and Chapel

The University of Redlands has again received recognition as a Tree Campus USA for 2015. Learn more about the trees on campus by taking a campus tree tour through photographs or by downloading the tree tour map and visiting campus in person.

Tree Campus USA program recognizes college and university campuses that:

  • Effectively manage their campus trees.
  • Develop connectivity with the community beyond campus borders to foster healthy, urban forests.
  • Strive to engage their student population utilizing service learning opportunities centered on campus, and community, forestry efforts.

Why the University of Redlands participates:

Trees benefit the environment, provide shade, protect us from the wind, and clean our air.

Campuses can benefit as well:

  • A commitment to trees on campus can, in turn, significantly reduce the amount of energy a campus, and community, needs to generate.
  • Planting and maintaining trees on campus and in the community reduces carbon dioxide in the atmosphere—which is one of the important roles that trees play.
  • Green spaces give students and faculty the setting to relax with others, or on their own. What better way to study or take a break than by being outside.
  • By meeting the annual standards and being recognized as a Tree Campus USA college, institutions create a campus that not only benefits the environment but instills pride in the students, faculty, and community.
