Davie earns green growth award for tree-planting projects Sun-Sentinel.com - Fort Lauderdale,FL,USA
But thanks to several landscape architects and one specialist, Davie last month pocketed its 18th Arbor Day Foundation Tree City USA Growth Award for its commitment to tree care and environmentally friendly projects.The impact of starting out weak but finishing strong with green public works projects isn't lost on Davie urban forester Tim Lee."We weren't using the 'right tree, right place' concept," Lee said. "But now, after two decades, we have such great knowledge of the town's native plants and it has earned us this prestigious award. It shows we protect and preserve our natural resources and particularly our tree canopy."
