Tucson Recognized on Arbor Day

The City of Tucson was recognized during Arizona's Arbor Day Celebration last Tuesday with a 24 Years of Tree City award. The awards are coordinated through Arizona State Forestry's Urban and Community Forestry.

With its ongoing designation as a Tree City USA community, Tucson joins 3,400 other U.S. cities recognized for their commitments to effective urban forest management. The U.S. Forest Service and National Association of State Foresters partner with the Arbor Day Foundation to honor communities that use trees to help clean air, improve stormwater management, save energy, and increase property values.
