Crestwood earns Tree City USA recognition


Crestwood earns Tree City USA recognition

The National Arbor Day Foundation has named Crestwood a Tree City USA.

This is the eighth year Crestwood has re-ceived this national recognition sponsored by the National Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service.

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 temperature and bring nature into our daily lives,'' National Arbor Day Foundation Pres-ident John Rosenow said. "(The) Tree City USA designation recognizes the work of elected officials, staff and citizens who plant and care for the community forest.''

"Trees are a vital component of the infrastructure in our towns and cities, and provide many environmental and economical benefits,'' Rosenow added. "A community, and its citizens, that recognizes these benefits and provides needed care for its trees deserves recognition and thanks.''
