Endemic and Indigenous Trees in DLSU-D

DLSU-D provides a unique learning environment with a microclimate that is 2 degrees lower than the temperature outside its walls owing to the rich biodiversity inside the University's 27- hectare campus.

Greening the Campus and Beyond

As of the first half of 2014, 1,398 trees have been planted within the campus with a total of 64 varieties, ranging from indigenous species like narra, kamagong and ipil ipil; tropical species like the jade vine and canistel; exotic plants like Tree of Heaven and Yellowbell, as well as fruit bearing trees like mango, avocado, sampaloc and langka.
