Tree City USA Certification


Arlington has been a designated Tree City USA every year since 2005. To earn Tree City USA status, municipalities must:

  • Have a tree warden
  • Follow state laws regulating community forests
  • Celebrate Arbor Day
  • Have an annual forestry budget of $2 per capita or more

Being a Tree City USA reflects a town’s commitment to protecting the environment and their community forest.  On a more pragmatic level, communities with this designation are sometimes given preference over others when competing for state or federal grants directed at trees or forestry programs.
