Tree Planting Ceremony
"Too old to plant trees for my own gratification, I shall do it for my posterity." -Thomas Jefferson
Each year, the University plants a tree on Founder's Day to remember Mr. Jefferson and to celebrate an individual who has made a significant contribution to U.Va.
This year's ceremony will be held on Friday, April 11, 2014. The name of this year's recipient will be announced in February 2014.
