Arbor Day Foundation recognizes Bowling Green as a Tree City USA

Properly placed tress increase property values and positively affect the local ecosystem by helping to clean water and create animal habitats to encourage biodiversity.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - Bowling Green was named a 2021 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation to honor the City's commitment to effective urban forest management.

Bowling Green achieved its Tree City designation by meeting the program's four requirements: forming a tree board or department, creating a tree-care ordinance, having 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 partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.

“Tree City USA communities benefit from the positive effects that an urban tree canopy has year after year,” said Dan Lambe, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “The trees being planted and cared for by Bowling Green ensure that generations to come will enjoy a better quality of life. Additionally, participation in this program helps cultivate a sense of stewardship and pride for the trees the community plants and cares for.”
