Forestry

The Village has a large inventory of trees scattered throughout the community.  This inventory is managed by the Village Forester on staff to maintain and care for the more than 9,000 trees that currently exist. The Village has been designated as a Tree City USA for 15 consecutive years. The Tree City USA program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and National Association of State Foresters, provides direction, technical assistance, public attention, and national recognition for urban and community forestry programs in thousands of cities that more than 120 million Americans call home (Arbor Day Foundation).
