City Named Tree City USA for 23rd Year

The City of St. Augustine has been named a Tree City USA by The National Arbor Day Foundation to honor its commitment to its community forest.  This is the 23rd time St. Augustine has received this national recognition. 

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by The National Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service. 

To be considered as a Tree City USA, cities must demonstrate they meet standards set in four areas: a tree board or commission, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance.

The City is also the recipient of a Tree City USA Growth Award for demonstrating progress in its community forestry program in the areas of planning and management, tree-maintenance budget, tree planting and maintenance, and street tree pruning. The Growth Award recognizes environmental improvement and higher levels of tree care in Tree City USA communities. 

“The effort put forward by the City indicates the level of commitment the City has towards protecting and maintaining our trees,” said Mark Knight, Director of Planning and Building.

This years’ award follows an Arbor Day ceremony held in front of City Hall earlier this year with the planting of two East Palatka Hollies in front of City Hall replacing Palatka Hollies that were destroyed during the 2004 hurricane season.

The National Arbor Day Foundation maintains a Web site (www.arborday.org) rich with information trees, their identification, planting instructions and proper care. In addition, the site has a great deal of information about Arbor Day, its history and offers resources and materials for planning a commemorative event.
