For the second year, the Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree Campus Healthcare program will recognize healthcare facility campuses fostering community wellness through tree planting, education, and engagement.
Tree canopy is a critical component of community health infrastructure — but urban tree cover is shrinking, and its health benefits are not often equitably distributed. This situation is being recognized and addressed by the Arbor Day Foundation. Is your healthcare facility campus working to create natural, tree-filled spaces where staff, patients, and your community can find respite?
In April 2020, 16 hospitals across the United States were recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation’s first-ever Tree Campus Healthcare facilities program. The healthcare institutions earned this recognition by demonstrating a commitment to improving community wellness through tree planting, education, and community engagement at their campus. Now, the Arbor Day Foundation is accepting applications for the second year.
