Standards


To qualify as a Tree City USA community, a town or city must meet 4 standards established by The Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters.
  • An Arbor day Observance or Proclamation
  • A Community Forestry program
  • A Tree Care Ordinance

These standards were established to ensure that every qualifying community would have a viable tree management plan and program.
