Arbor Day Foundation Honors Davie with Tree City USA® Recognition Growth Award

The Town of Davie was recognized by the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA community for its commitment to urban forestry. It is the 19th year Davie has earned this national recognition.

Davie also received a Tree City USA Growth Award for demonstrating progress in its community forestry program in the following activity areas:

· Planning and management

· Wildlife habitat

· Tree planting and maintenance

· Street tree planting

· Tree preservation

The prestigious Growth Award honors environmental improvement and higher levels of tree care in Tree City USA communities. Davie also was awarded the 2009 Outstanding Urban Forester Program in Florida this past year.

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.

Davie has met the four standards to become a Tree City USA community. Tree City USA communities must have a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
