NDSU Receives 2012 Trees Award

Trees Award 2012 recipients are recognized on the field at the Fargodome during the Trees Bowl football game.

NDSU President Dean Bresciani and Dr. Todd West accepted the 2012 “TREE CELEBRATION OF THE YEAR” Trees Award at the Trees Bowl and Awards Ceremony held in Fargo on September 1, 2012.  Nominations were received from across the state and the award winners were recognized by the North Dakota Forest Service and North Dakota State University.

NDSU hosted the Tree City/Line/Campus USA event for participants from across the state.  The highlight was the ceremonial tree planting to recognize the achievements of the 44 Tree City USA Communities, the Tree Line USA and of course, North Dakota’s only Tree Campus USA – NDSU!  To achieve this high status, NDSU met five requirements – form an Advisory committee, create a management plan, dedicate an annual expenditure for tree planting and care, hold an Arbor Day observance, and engage the student body in a service learning project.

The NDSU selection Prairie Dream® Paper Birch – Betula papyrifera ‘Varen’ that participants planted together during the ceremony will serve as a lasting reminder of the dedication that communities, utilities and NDSU have to plant and care for trees.

The award winners were honored at the Fargodome.  During the awards ceremony, NDSU President Dean Bresciani and State Forester Larry Kotchman, presented each winner with a special Trees Awards plaque and limited edition centennial trees print.  The award winners were also recognized on the field during the NDSU half-time activities at the Trees Bowl football game in the Fargodome.
