When trees, limbs and leaves come down at Carolina, they never actually leave campus. They are transformed to beautify the landscaping in a new way and keep 360 tons of material out of landfills each year.
The Carolina Tree Heritage program is giving second life to downed campus trees by transforming the trunks and branches into furniture, sculptures and other wooden creations, with the proceeds going toward student scholarships.
When Carolina celebrated its bicentennial in 1993, Davie Poplar saplings were planted throughout the state. Revisit some of those saplings and the Tar Heels who planted them to see how Carolina has literally taken root in North Carolina.
