Port Clinton a Tree City USA

Port Clinton was named a 2013 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.

Port Clinton 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.

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation, in coordination with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.

“Everyone benefits when elected officials, volunteers and committed citizens in communities like Port Clinton make smart investments in urban forests,” said John Rosenow, founder and 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.”

Cleaner air, improved storm water management, energy savings and increased property values and commercial activity are among the benefits enjoyed by Tree U.S.A. communities.

More information on the program is available at www.arborday.org/TreeCityUSA.

The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member non-profit conservation and education organization with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees.
