The National Arbor Day Foundation has named the Village of Villa Park Tree City USA. It is the 33rd 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 Division will celebrate Arbor Day April 27, 2018 at 10:00 A.M. by planting a tree at the intersection of Michigan Avenue and the Prairie Path in Villa Park, Illinois. The Environmental Concerns Commission will donate $250 for the tree.
