To celebrate Arbor Day, the Tree Care Industry Association presented the University with an award for its stewardship and preservation of the unique collection of American elms on campus.
Marc Valera, vice president for facilities, accepted the award on behalf of the University from Sachin Mohan, vice president of corporate relations and marketing at the Tree Care Industry Association. Joining them were Steve Farelly, owner and founder of Emerald Tree & Shrub Care Company, and Anthony Bulfamante, president of A. Bulfmante Landscaping.
A pin oak tree that was donated to the University by A. Bulfmante Landscaping was also planted at the Martyr’s Lawn triangular bed.
