The City of Farmington Hills has earned the Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree City USA community through a commitment to effective urban forest management.
The city had to meet the program’s four requirements:
- a tree board or department
- a tree care ordinance
- an annual community budget of at least $2 per capita
- an Arbor Day observance and proclamation
The Arbor Day Foundation recently launched the “Time for Trees” initiative to address issues of air quality, water resources, protection from extreme heat and flooding, and personal health and well-being.
