| December 2, 2011

BALTIMORE – In commemoration of its Centennial celebration, the Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS) planted a Centennial Tree on the University of Louisville campus on Oct. 28 as part of the Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree Campus USA program.

Before the tree planting took place, Past President Joe Jackson, CGM  spoke about the impact of planting trees for the future health of our environment, the need for making sustainability a part of our everyday lives and the importance of green industry groups and other organizations partnering and working together for the greater good of the environment.

“We were honored to be asked to be a part of such a great event not only because it helped us to celebrate our 100th year, but also because partnering with other organizations in this industry to help beautify and enrich landscapes around the world is at the heart of PGMS," Jackson said.

The Arbor Day Foundation presented PGMS with an engraved shovel to commemorate their 100th year as well as their participation in the Tree Campus USA program. PGMS is a big proponent of the Tree Campus USA program, boasting numerous members from campuses that are already designated.

The University of Louisville was also celebrated its Tree Campus USA designation from the Arbor Day Foundation.

Photos from the event can be found on the PGMS Facebook page.
