Upper Merion named a 2016 Tree City USA by Arbor Day Foundation

Allegany College of Maryland celebrates Arbor Day

The Arbor Day Foundation commends campuses committed to engaging staff and students in conservation goals. There are four core standards of sound urban forestry management that must be met for eligibility: maintaining a tree board, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.

After the city is recognized for its efforts as a Tree City, USA, several of the students will assist with the planting of two Skyline Locust trees, a cotton-less Cottonwood and an Autumn Blaze Maple.

Three flowering crabapple trees will be planted and a forester from the Colorado State Forest Service will present the Tree Campus USA award.

For more information, contact Judge Anthony at 410-778-3385 or Jonathan Cowherd at 410-708-3702.

The Town of Lancaster Forestry Department will be hosting an Arbor Day celebration from 10 a.m.to noon Saturday, April 29, at Westwood Park.

After giving out trees to guests of the Earth Day celebration on ISU's campus on Wednesday, Tree Campus USA has helped reduce carbon dioxide and promote the importance of trees to Earth.
