Social Media Tree Vote
ASU’s tree planting wasn’t any run-of-the-mill event this year. Students were able to get involved early by voting on social media for what type would be planted on campus. The options were a Mexican Elderberry, a Screwbean Mesquite, an Ironwood and an Elephant Tree. The Ironwood won by a landslide. The Ironwood tree was planted by sustainability students in honor of Arbor Day.
