Winnetka Again Named Tree City USA
March 9, 2017 10:22 AM
For the 24th year, the Forestry Division of the Public Works Department is proud to announce that Winnetka has been named a Tree City USA for 2016 by the Arbor Foundation, for our commitment to effective urban forest management. Tree City USA communities are recognized for meeting four requirements set by the Arbor Foundation that reflect a strong commitment to maintaining the urban tree-scape: (i) having a tree board or department, (ii) a tree-care ordinance, (iii) a minimum $2 per capita annual community forestry budget; and (iv) an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
The Village takes pride in this recognition of their forestry efforts. For more information, please visit www.arborday.org/TreeCityUSA or call Village Forester Jim Stier at 847 716-3535.
