TSU to host tree-planting ceremony

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee State University is hosting a tree-planting event to promote its commitment to building an urban forest by planting trees on the Nashville campus.

The event scheduled for Sunday is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation through the Tree Campus USA program.

Students, faculty and staff, as well as community volunteers, will plant more than 30 crepe myrtles, red maple and nuttal oak trees around campus.

The program is planned to commemorate both TSU and Trevecca Nazarene University's commitment to promoting healthy urban forest management.

Now in its fifth year, Tree Campus USA recognizes the best practices in campus forestry throughout the United States. TSU and Trevecca will become two of the more than 190 universities taking part in the program.
