25th year for Tree City USA

Lewisville Tree City USA for the 25th Year
Post Date:April 16, 2019

Lewisville was named a 25-year Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.

“Celebrating our Silver Anniversary as a Tree City USA would not be possible without our community partners such as Keep Lewisville Beautiful and the Friends of LLELA,” said Mayor Rudy Durham. “Throughout the year, our Parks & Recreation Department partners with these organization to host tree plantings and community events that enhance our resident’s awareness of the value of our urban tree canopy.”

Lewisville achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

“Everyone benefits when elected officials, volunteers and committed citizens in communities like Lewisville make smart investments in urban forests,” said Matt Harris, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Trees bring shade to our homes and beauty to our neighborhoods, along with numerous economic, social and environmental benefits.” Trees are assets to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.
