The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. Mayor Joseph Herbert issued a proclamation establishing May 9 as Arbor Day in West Wyoming. The borough celebrated by planting a tree donated by the Shission Family in Charney Park.
