Arbor Day

Every year, we are fortunate to celebrate both Tennessee Arbor Day, and National Arbor Day! Tennessee Arbor Day is the first Friday in March, and National Arbor Day is the last Friday in April.

What: Join us on TN Arbor Day (Friday, March 3rd, 2023) for an Arbor Day Ceremony and Tree Campus presentation. Ceremony will begin at 11:00am.

Where: RAIN OR SHINE! Presentation to take place at Henson Hall. We will then walk across the street to the Student Union for the ceremonial tree planting. If you plan on driving to this volunteer event, please park on 16th street in designated parking spots and grab a parking pass from volunteers located nearby.

Every spring on Tennessee State Arbor Day, UT students gather to plant trees around campus.The past years we’ve done a tree planting along the banks of Second Creek here on campus as a part of the greater riparian restoration project that is taking place there.
This year UT Facilities Services will host an Arbor Day Celebration and tree planting ceremony in partnership with the Tennessee Champion Tree Program.
