The National Arbor Day Foundation has named the Village of Villa Park a Tree City USA community. It is the 32nd consecutive year Villa Park has received this National recognition.
The National Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service sponsors the Tree City USA program. To become a Tree City USA, a community must meet four standards: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance.
“Trees in our cities and towns help clean the air, conserve soil and water, moderate temperatures and bring nature into our daily lives,” said John Rosenow, president of The National Arbor Day Foundation. “Tree City USA designation recognizes the work of elected officials, staff and citizens who plant and care for the community forest.”
The Villa Park Forestry and Park Divisions will celebrate Arbor Day on April 28th, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. by planting a tree at the intersection of Park Boulevard and Harvard Avenue in Villa Park, Illinois.
