The University of New Mexico (UNM) will celebrate National Arbor Day with a week's worth of tree plantings and events. UNM is a nationally recognized campus arboretum and provides opportunities for the public and educators to see a diverse selection of openly grown trees. Several student groups including Biology Undergraduate Society (BUGS), Lobo SEEDS, and Association of Student Landscape Architects worked with arborists in the Physical Plant Department to choose the trees and locations for planting.
