Taylor Earns Tree City USA Certification for the 5th Year

Tree City USA

The City was notified in February of their recertification as a Tree City USA for the calendar year of 2016.

This marks this fifth consecutive year that Taylor has earned this distinction from the Arbor Day Foundation.

“This distinction is representative of the dedication of our community who value our natural resources and understand the important role trees play in our health and quality of life,” said Mike DeVito, Director of Parks and Recreation. “We look forward to sharing this honor with them and affirming our commitment to maintaining our Tree City USA status.”

Tree City USA is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees. Cities achieve this status by meeting the 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.
