ARBOR DAY FOUNDATION NAMES MILAN TREE CITY USA FOR THE 20TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
On Thursday April 27, 2023, the Village of Milan held an Arbor Day Tree Planting Ceremony. Mayor Pamela Crosby was assisted by the Village of Milan Street, Electric and Water Departments and Village resident Lorri Keyser in planting a Redpointe Maple on South Main Street. Mayor Crosby read an Arbor Day Proclamation at a recent Council Meeting on April 26, 2023. Pictured left to right Lorri Keyser and Mayor Pamela Crosby.
Milan, OH, was named a 2021 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.
Milan 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.
"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.
More information on the program is available at arborday.org/TreeCityUSA.
About the Arbor Day Foundation: The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member nonprofit conservation and education organization with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. More information is available at arborday.org.
