Is the institution recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation's Tree Campus USA program?:
No

A brief description of the institution's Tree Campus USA program:

GW has taken fthe first steps towards achieving the Tree Campus USA recognition in 2014. In the meantime, GW has a longstanding partnership with Casey Trees, a local non-profit dedicated to promoting tree canopy in the District. As part of this partnership, GW hosts tree-watering interns during the summer to help maintain tree health, has conducted tree inventories on campus to better understand tree composition on campus and has planted numerous trees on campus. As an urban campus, GW is limited by how many trees it can plant by DC law and code, but works hand-in-hand with district agencies to advocate for additional low-impact development projects.
