On the campus of Sinclair Community College, more than a thousand trees grow, offering beautiful landscaping and useful tree canopy coverage. However, other benefits to be considered include the diversity and origin of each tree, along with the amount of CO2 and storm water sequestered. This poster examines a cluster of trees growing on the campus ‘front lawn’, and the environmental impact and risk involved with tree planting decisions. Each tree on a college campus serve larger purposes than pleasing aesthetics and offering shade.
