For the ninth year in a row, North Hempstead Town has been recognized as a “Tree City USA” by the Arbor Day Foundation.

 

According to Arbor Day Foundation website, the Tree City USA program is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees. The designation is given out to towns and cities that have a viable tree management plan and program. The program started in 1976.
 

To be eligible to be recognized as a “Tree City USA” community certain requirements must be met such as; having a Tree Board or Department, having a Tree Care Ordinance, having a Community Forestry Program and the observance of Arbor Day.

 

“We are proud to again earn this prestigious designation that exemplifies our track record of enacting successful environmental initiatives,”  said Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth.
