Celina Receives Tree City USA Growth Award

The Tree City USA program, organized by the Arbor Day Foundation, has been in place since 1976. This program is a national effort to encourage communities to manage and expand their public trees. Since the program's inception, over 3,400 communities have

committed to becoming a Tree City USA. Celina recently achieved the Tree City USA

designation for the second year in a row. This means that the City meets four core

standards of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or

department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry, and celebrating Arbor Day. Not only was Celina able to secure a second

year of certification as a Tree City USA, but the City also received a Growth Award which is given to Tree City USA communities that demonstrate a higher level of tree care and

community engagement. Through updating the City's tree-friendly ordinances, the City was able to secure the Growth Award.
