The Purdue 1869 Tree Planting Master Plan Wins Award at from INASLA

The Purdue 1869 Tree Planting Master Plan, an initiative that involves planting 3738 trees by fiscal year 2025, won an award this fall in the “Environmental Sustainability Category” from the Indiana Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (INASLA). The total number of trees proposed for planting on campus was determined by doubling 1869, which is the year Purdue was founded. Professor Paul Siciliano, Director of the Purdue Arboretum, is a leading member of the team carrying out this ambitious plan. Others involved in this team effort include the Purdue University Grounds Department and the Purdue Office of Campus Planning, Architecture and Sustainability. We are proud to have our landscape stewardship efforts recognized by INASLA.
