Tree Campus USA?

Tree Campus UAF I’ve never made an infographic before, but a make-and-share seemed like a good time to try it out. I used Canva, an online graphics program.

I was surprised to see these little signs pop-up around campus a few years ago, that said “Tree Campus USA”. So, I thought I’d share.

  1. Very nice graphic, looks professionally done!
    I did not know UAF had the tallest black spruce tree, very cool fact! πŸ™‚

    What did you think of Canva? I used Venngage to make an infographic, and while it was easy to use, I didn’t have access to use the image with the free version, I could only link to it. Was this a pay version that allowed you to include it in your post?

  2. Thanks! πŸ™‚

    I thought Canva was a pretty good program. I used the free version for mine. Canva has free and pro versions, but it also has premium graphics/elements available for free users. I didn’t have any in mine, so I don’t know if that would have effected the final product.
