Grayslake Honored Again As Tree City USA - Grayslake, IL Patch
The Village of Grayslake was designated a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation for the 17th consecutive year in recognition of its community forestry program.
“The Village is proud to have this designation as it recognizes the continued effort to promote the planting and preservation of trees in the community,” said Mayor Rhett Taylor in a press release. “The planting of trees improves Grayslake and air quality in the community.”
This designation is made possible, in part, by the Village’s environmental programs such as the Tree Reimbursement and Neighborhood Partnership Programs. In 2010, over 80 new trees were planted in Grayslake through the Tree Reimbursement Program.
