Trees are Celebrated on the Mississippi State Campus

Forestry students Kelsey Nicholas and Garrett Dismukes are doing what they love most -- planting a tree. His family has grown trees for decades. "That's just our family's passion," said Dismukes. Dismukes joins other forestry program students, faculty and Mississippi State University officials to plant this oak tree. "It makes our campus look beautiful and it makes our campus look a lot better and you know, it shows we do care about forestry here on campus," Dismukes added. The tree planting marks an important occasion on the MSU campus. They have just been designated a Tree Campus USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation. "We take great pride in the fact that we are a campus that appreciates the value of trees -- not only for us to enjoy, but for the impact in our economy," said MSU President Dr. Mark Keenum.
