Awards & Honors

April 22, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Village of Morrow was recognized as a Tree City USA today in the Southwest Ohio awards ceremony hosted by the City of West Carrollton  and their Parks Commission.  This is the third time our community has been honored with this nationally recognized award.

The awards were presented to the Tree City USA communities by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry at the West Carrollton Nazarene Church.  The title of "Tree City USA" was bestowed upon our community for its ongoing efforts to maintain and improve the quality of life through a comprehensive street tree management program.  The program is guided by the Tree Commission and the municipal government.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry acts as a guiding hand in helping a community to become qualified as a Tree City USA.  The Urban Forester recommends a community to the Arbor Day Foundation for this standing.  In order to achieve the title and the honors, a community must meet four standards:  a Tree Ordinance; an active Tree Commission or forestry department; a comprehensive urban forestry program supported by a minimum of two dollars per capita; and an annual Arbor Day proclamation and public observance.

The State of Ohio currently boasts the greatest number of Tree Cities in the country with a grand total this past year of 241.  This marks Ohio’s 35th year as the top Tree City USA state, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Forestry.  42 of Southwest Ohio’s communities are Tree Cities.  All were recognized for their achievements at the awards ceremony.
