Village celebrates 28th Tree City USA designation

Post Date:04/24/2019 5:29 PM

For the 28th consecutive year, the National Arbor Day Foundation has named the Village of Hoffman Estates a Tree City USA.

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. To become a Tree City USA, Hoffman Estates must meet four standards annually:

  • Have an established tree board or department
  • Have a tree care ordinance
  • Have a community forestry program with an annual budget of at least $2 per capita
  • Have an Arbor Day observance and proclamation
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.

The Tree City USA program has been greening up cities across America since 1976. It is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees.
