Westminster again a Tree City USA

For the fourth consecutive year, Westminster has been named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation, Mayor W. Benjamin Brown said.

"The Tree City USA honor comes from the National Arbor Day Foundation, a nonprofit education organization dedicated to tree planting and environmental stewardship," Mayor Brown said.

The city also was the recipient of a Tree City USA Growth award for its active participation in its community forestry program.

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

To be designated a Tree City USA, a community must have a tree board or department; a city tree ordinance; a comprehensive community forestry program; and an Arbor Day observance.
