Tree City USA and Growth Award
The City of Manchester is excited to announce it was re-certified as a Tree City USA community and received a Growth Award as presented by the Arbor Day Foundation. The Growth Award recognizes communities for higher levels of tree care through increased commitment of resources to urban forestry management. Manchester achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements: having a tree advisory board, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. The City shares the Arbor Day Foundation’s corporate mission “to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees”.
