Know Holiday Decoration Guidelines

While decorating offices and other spaces with festive displays, Environmental Health and Safety asks that you keep safety practices in mind to minimize potential fire hazards associated with decorations. View advice on the I-Safety webpage.

Beware of Cutting Evergreens on Campus

When thinking of the holidays, aromas of cinnamon, cloves and fresh-cut evergreens may come to mind, not the stench of skunk scent and fox urine. Before harvesting an evergreen on campus, know that each year the landscape team sprays about 100 trees with a natural repellent of skunk scent and fox urine, as well as a sticking agent, to protect them from theft and destruction during the holiday season. Learn more about the program and the effects of removing trees from campus.
