Campaign will bring more Redbud Trees to TWU Denton Campus


DENTON — Scores of redbuds will once again blossom on the Texas Woman’s University Denton campus thanks to the Redbud Tree Revitalization fundraising campaign.

A gift of $100 will purchase one 15-gallon Eastern Redbud tree and a gift of $200 will purchase one 30-gallon tree. The goal is to purchase and plant the redbud trees in fall 2007, so that in spring 2008 the Denton campus will once again be covered with the pink flowering trees. Donations must be received by Sept. 1, 2007.

For more information visit www.twu.edu or contact Carolyn Ishee, executive director of TWU Institutional Development at cishee@twu.edu or 940-898-3869.
In 1938, TWU President L.H. Hubbard began a long-term plan to add hundreds of redbud trees to the campus landscape. Eventually, more than 2,000 redbuds were planted, but many of those trees died over the years. To celebrate TWU’s Centennial in 2001, 50 redbud trees were planted. The current redbud campaign will bring to the campus even more of the trees that once famously lined drives and walkways.
