VC Responds as Trees Are Taken Away From the Campus

VC’s Response to the Open Letter regarding the greens of DU’s North Campus:

Thank you for your letter concerning trees and greens at the University. Your concern is important. The University has neither lost its essence nor values. Today the University has no facilities for sports. Our challenge is to create reasonable sports facilities and at the same time create a rich green cover. I am confident both can be done together. There may be some setback for a short period of time but in 3-5 years it will be even more green that what you are seeing today.

  1. This is a very good initiative, hope he is aware of what trees need to be planted than filling up with ornamental trees as happened in case of CWG. Perhaps you can give him a list of trees from which he can choose and not just stick to single species.
