There are nearly 7000 trees on our campus. The large amount of branch and leaf wastes generated as a result of pruning and maintenance processes are turned into sawdust with a sawdust making machine, and then mulch is turned into fertilizer after necessary processes. The fertilizer obtained is used at tree bottoms. Thus, trees and other plants are fed with natural, organic fertilizers that are much healthier. These wastes are recycled, both saving and contributing to the environment. In addition, by eliminating the storage problem  the risk of fire is also reduced.
