CU holds annual tree planting to observe Arbor Day

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Cameron University celebrated Arbor Day today by continuing their annual tradition of planting a tree. Cameron University is designated one of 200 Tree Campus USA schools across the nation.

Members of multiple Cameron University clubs were present for the planting.

Vice President for Business and Finance Ninette Carter says the trees really make the campus.

“Cameron University has planted over a thousand trees, not in recognition of Arbor Day but, over the years, and it has really changed the look of campus,” said Carter.

The Caddo Sugar Maple Tree that was planted today is native to Oklahoma and will grow well in the soil.
