Arbor Day

SHSU celebrates Arbor Day twice every year. SH Arbor Day is on the last Thursday in March and TX Arbor Day is on the first Thursday of November. Look for more information in the weeks leading up to the event or contact SHSU Leadership Initiatives for details about how to volunteer. It's always a great event for SHSU students, faculty, and staff to help our urban forest grow.

Zero Waste Initiative

No landscape waste created by SHSU Landscape Services enters the waste stream or landfills. All wood less that 10” in diameter is chipped into mulch and leaves are composted. The mulch and compost are used to enhance our campus landscape. Large dimension wood is split into firewood or donated to a local mulch plant. If you are interested in firewood or logs contact the campus arborist.
