Reminder: Please participate in the tree survey

You are invited to share your opinions regarding the composition of trees on Marshall University’s Huntington campus.  Sadly, the Ash trees that currently line the edge of Buskirk field (adjacent to the science building) have become fatally infested with an invasive species known as the Emerald Ash Borer.  Due to safety concerns and regulations, chemical treatment of these trees is not an option and a decision has been made to remove the Ash trees later this semester.  Though this situation is unfortunate, it presents us with an opportunity to involve the campus community in deciding how to replace these trees.  If you would like to share your opinions about trees that are being considered for planting along the edge of Buskirk Field, please follow the survey link below.  The survey is completely anonymous and is expected to take less than 10 minutes of your time.

Thank you for your time and effort in completing the survey!
