Stanford Tree Transplant Program
Stanford’s tree transplant program, a joint effort between Campus Planning and Buildings & Grounds Maintenance, is responsible for transplanting about 1,165 trees all over campus. Rather than cutting down trees to make way for construction, the transplant team carefully chooses a new site and monitors the trees’ health each week following a transplant. The increased tree cover on campus helps create shade, cool buildings, provides habitat, and mitigates storm water runoff.
