Practices and Impacts
- The team manages 400 acres of forest, with the objective of maintaining diverse forest habitat as part of their sustainable campus standards. They maintain an inventory of 3,521 trees – including data for common name, diameter at breast height (DBH), condition class, maintenance tasks and estimated value – with the assistance of Bartlett Tree Expert and Brightview Landscaping. They seek to double the number of trees in their inventory database.
- Twelve bluebird boxes are monitored, and data is provided to NestWatch.
