Arbor Day Foundation Names DuPont Tree City USA for the 10th Year

The City of DuPont was named a 2018 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. This is the 10th year in a row that DuPont has received this title!

DuPont 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.

As part of our celebration for achieving 10 years, our Tree City sign has been updated with a 10 year banner.

"Tree City USA communities see the impact an urban forest has in a community first hand," said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Additionally, recognition brings residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it's through volunteer engagement or public education."

Trees provide multiple benefits to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.

A special thanks to our Tree Board members who helped make this accomplishment possible - Michael Farley, Dee Merz-Stavis, Kyongmin Yook, and Larry Clark.

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