The environmental stewardship of Messiah College has led to its recognition for 2017 Tree Campus USA Recognition for the year of 2017. To obtain this distinction, Messiah College has met the five core standards for sustainable campus forestry required by Tree Campus USA, including establishment of a tree advisory committee, evidence of a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and the sponsorship of student service-learning projects.
