A message from Facilities and Campus Services
In an effort to create a more sustainable and pleasurable campus environment, Facilities and Campus Services, with the support of and in accordance with the bylaws of the Campus Tree Advisory Committee, will be thinning the existing row of Chinese Pistache trees along the north side of Lot E between the Library and Salem Hall.
The removal of every other tree will allow the light needed to establish grass on the bare eroding slope — preventing erosion of soil into the Lot E and the storm drains leading to Lake Katherine and Silas Creek. The remaining trees will also have more room to reach their full potential.
This work will occur during the week of July 21. If you have any questions, contact David Davis at (336) 758-4622.
