The Grounds staff saves and transplants trees from slated construction zones. Several of these trees are planted behind Howard Hall and next to Griffin Hall, and are the original orphans from various building sites over the last 14 years. Over the last several years, 116 Sabal Palms, 8 Live Oaks and 2 Cypress trees were taken from building sites on campus, and relocated to other areas around the FGCU campus, including the Tree Orphanage.
