Landscape & Ecology

We will cultivate sustainable landscapes that increase biodiversity and enrich all ecosystem services, which are vital to environmental and human health and well-being.

Goals and Aspirations

  • Adhere to Pitt’s Sustainable Landscape Design Guidelines in all new landscape designs. Read the guidelines.
  • Increase tree canopy by 50% and replace 15% of lawn area with indigenous and adapted plants by 2030 (from 2017 baseline). See IMP Dashboard.
  • Maintain at least 75% of landscaped areas in accordance with Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) Standards for Organic Land Care by 2024.
