Tree Campus USA Badge

Whitman College holds the designation of Tree Campus USA from the Arbor Day Foundation. What does it take to maintain our campus trees (and our 1:1 student to tree ratio)? Watch the video to see how arborist Kirk Huffey climbs trees on campus to perform maintenance and pruning.

Each Arbor Day, Whitman College celebrates its campus landscape with public events and tree tours. This year, you can enjoy a virtual tour of Whitman's prickly trees, led by Senior Lecturer of Biology Susanne Altermann.
