The City of Greenville was recently named a 2013 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation for the 19th year. The city achieved the national designation by meeting the programs four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capital and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

The Arbor Day Foundation says some of the benefits enjoyed by Tree City USA communities include cleaner air, improved storm water management, energy savings, increased property values and commercial activity. To learn more about the program, visit their website at www.ArborDay.org/TreeCityUSA.
