Plantation is Tree City USA for 30th year in a row - South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com:
Amid plans for a parade, 5K, crafts, music and exhibits at the Green Day! Environmental Expo, perhaps the most exciting event for the day is the presentation of Plantation's 30th year being certified as Tree City USA.
'It's a very distinct honor to be certified as a Tree City USA, especially for 30 consecutive years,' said Sue Reed, Plantation's executive secretary. 'This is a very special milestone for the city of Plantation, so there will be a big celebration.'
The certification is given by the Arbor Day Foundation and standards for qualifying are based on the city having a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a community forestry program with an annual budget of at least $2 per person, and observing Arbor Day.
