Hofstra Becomes a Tree Campus USA

Hofstra University was named a Tree Campus USA for the third year in a row. A Tree Campus is designated by the Arbor Day Foundation, a 501c (3) non-profit conservation and education organization, to recognize current efforts to plant, nurture and celebrate trees! For the third year, Hofstra meets the five Tree Campus standards. Activities are sponsored on campus across the country with a million members who support programs to make the world greener and healthier. Last year, students will join the Hofstra Grounds staff and Tree Campus USA committee and planted a tree on the plaza west of the new School of Business building on April 23, 2019.

Hofstra Arboretum

The 240 acre campus received official recognition as an Arboretum in 1985, with Hofstra's membership in the prestigious American Public Gardens Association, and is one of only 430 arboreta in the United States. Today, more than 12,000 evergreen and deciduous trees represent 625 species and varieties, and the number is increasing every year.
