      Is there a deforestation limit we can aim for? - University of Washington

Tree Education Tuesday

Deforestation is bad, according to just about everybody in the world who isn’t actively engaged in cutting down a tree right now. It isn’t a controversial position to say that we should save our rain forests and other major wooded areas, but it also isn’t a particularly useful one. A more interesting question to answer is exactly how much is too much when it comes to deforestation: Just as the world has coalesced around doing our best to hold global warming under two degrees C from preindustrial levels, is there some amount of forest that we really must keep in order to keep the ecosystems at least somewhat intact?

Fun Facts:
- The University of Florida received Tree Campus USA designation for the first time in 2013. 
- The campus is adorned with more than 1,200 trees. 
- UF’s efforts to become more sustainable have made them an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary.

Arizona State University Arbor Day Observance

Location: Tempe, Arizona

Population Size: 76,611

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.
