Memphis Named Tree City USA by Arbor Day Foundation

Memphis has been named a Tree City USA community by the Arbor Day Foundation to honor its commitment to community forestry.

It is the sixteenth year Memphis has received this national recognition.

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.

Memphis has met the four standards to become a Tree City USA community; having a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

Communities that receive Tree City USA recognition not only have taken the time to meet these four standards, they recognize that:

* Trees promote healthier communities. Leaves filter the air we breathe by removing dust and other particles.

* Trees moderate climate, conserve water and provide habitat for wildlife.

* Trees in urban areas reduce the heat island effect caused by pavement and buildings.

* Properly placed trees can increase property values, and buildings in wooded areas rent more quickly and tenants stay longer.

ďA community, its elected officials and its citizens that provide needed care for its trees deserves recognition and thanks,Ē said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. ďTrees are a vital component of the infrastructure in our cities and towns, and they also provide environmental and economical benefits. Cities that are recognized with a Tree City USA designation go to great length to plant and care for the community forest!Ē

The Arbor Day Foundation is a nonprofit, environmental, an education organization of nearly one million members, with a mission to inspire people to plan, nurture, and celebrate trees. More information on the Foundation and its programs can be found at www.arborday.org.
