Yale staff members who are celebrating five-year milestone anniversaries may choose to have a tree planted in their honor in lieu of selecting a traditional gift.
The trees are planted on Yale’s campus by the Urban Resources Initiative, Yale HR staff, alumni, and other volunteers. Yale groundskeepers will water and nurture the tree. The 2016 fall planting will be held on Wed. Oct 5, 3:30 - 5:30 pm at the Urban Farm on West Campus. The spring 2016 tree plantings were completed on May 7 at 340 Edwards Street. Volunteers and honorees are always invited to attend.
Honorees who are interested in having a tree planted may request one through Yale’s staff service recognition gift catalog. Gift ordering instructions — including those for ordering a tree —will be sent to the honoree just prior to his/her anniversary date via campus mail along with a certificate of appreciation; the honoree also will receive an e-mail with this information on the day of his/her anniversary.
