Tree City USA: what does it mean?
Placeholder Image
Tree City USA is a designation we can be proud of, particularly since the city has achieved and continuously maintained this status for the past 26 years. Tree City USA is a national program under the auspices of The Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters and provides the framework for community forestry management of public trees in cities and towns across America. Communities achieve Tree City USA status and must annually recertify it by meeting four core standards or criteria of sound urban forestry management.
