NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Nashville universities are being recognized for their trees.
The Tennessean reports the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota gave the Tree Campus USA distinction to Tennessee State University and Trevecca Nazarene University. The newspaper reports the universities near downtown Nashville are the first in Middle Tennessee to receive the recognition.
After the ceremony on Sunday, more trees were planted by students, faculty and administrators.
To qualify for the recognition, campuses must have a tree advisory committee, a tree care plan, a tree program with dedicated expenditures each year, an Arbor Day observance and a service project.
