Village Awarded Tree City USA Recognition

The Village of Essex Junction has been named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of our commitment to effective urban forest management.  This is the third consecutive year the Village has received this award.

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. Essex Junction achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
