GS students plant trees for Georgia Arbor Day

Original article from WJCL: Georgia Southern University students have been planting trees for six years to practice environmental sustainability, and Friday was no different. More than 30 students and faculty members planted 500 pine seedlings on the outskirts of the campus.

A faculty member says the event not only teaches students ecological responsibility, but its a memory they take with them as well.

“These trees will be grown for many years, and this will give them an opportunity when they come down southern drive, or when they take their grad pictures at the GSU bed, to say I had a hand in this. I brought along the next generation of trees, ” said Alicia Lanier, supervisor of Grounds North.

Lanier says for every tree that dies or is taken down on campus, they try to plant two or three in its place.
