Adopt a Tree Program

Urban Forest Initiative Tree Week

ECTC is celebrating Tree Week this year with an "ADOPT A TREE" activity. Just pick out a favorite tree on campus and fill out the form on the website. We have some tree labels also, so you could add your name and the name of the tree (if known). All you need is a tape measure and a camera or phone. (Tape measures and tree labels will be provided in the Bio lab - room 201S.) Tree week is officially October 2 through the 6. And guess what - it doesn't even have to be a tree on campus - it can be anywhere in Hardin County!!

Please share with students and community members. ECTC has some beautiful trees to adopt! Let me know if you have any questions.

AND - We now have a tree inventory of the campus, so if you are looking for a specific type of tree - just email me!
