Hoffman Estates named Tree City USA for 25th consecutive year
A municipality’s designation as a Tree City community is reflective of the level of stewardship necessary to build greater communities for today and tomorrow, while continuously enhancing the beauty and value of Hoffman Estates property, both public and private.
To become a Tree City USA, Hoffman Estates met four standards:
• Have an established tree board or department
• Have a tree care ordinance
• Have a comprehensive community forestry program
• Have an Arbor Day observance
The National Arbor Day Foundation, in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service, sponsors the Tree City USA program.
The Village’s annual Arbor Day celebration is being held tomorrow, Friday, April 29, at 10:30 a.m. at Arbor Day Park (Downing Drive and Sumac Trail). See calendar post
