What is the Tree City USA Program?

Tree City USA - Winterville, GA

 

 

The Tree City USA program is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees since 1976.

More than 3,400 communities have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA. They have achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management:

  • maintaining a tree board or department
  • having a community tree ordinance
  • spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and
  • celebrating Arbor Day.

 

 

 

 

 

Winterville has achieved Tree City USA status.
