Facilities and Grounds Mission Statement

To professionally maintain a world-class campus environment by delivering the highest quality service to our campus community.

Facilities and Grounds Core Values



The University of Alabama Facilities and Grounds Tree Care and Maintenance Policy states:

Having healthy trees is a top priority to keep our campus beautiful.. Misuse of any and all trees is prohibited.  Examples of abuse include, but are not limited to climbing, use of ropes, wire, hammocks, slack lines, zip lines, nails tape and signage, etc.  All these issues cause stress, scarring and, often broken branches, which can lead to disease and death of an otherwise healthy tree and therefore is prohibited.
