OK FORESTRY SERVICES
Oklahoma Forestry Services and the Oklahoma Urban & Community
Forestry Council have become partners in promoting the Tree City USA
program throughout the state. Tree City USA was created by the National
Arbor Day Foundation to challenge American cities to become better
stewards of their urban forests through careful management of city
trees. Forestry and the Council work diligently to offer guidance to
every community that wants to adopt the Tree City USA approach to
caring for its forest resources.
The two organizations have created a model recognition program
to reward the achievements of these devoted friends of trees and to
assure them that their work is appreciated. The Tree City Recognition
Celebration is the kickoff for Arbor Week in Oklahoma. The event makes
each Tree City representative an honored guest for a day of fun,
pampering and networking at the state capitol. Public education and
promotion of the Tree City program are continuous activities for both
the Council and Forestry Services. The recognition event is growing
each year and the goal is that more and more cities will attain Tree
City status by planning for and protecting the Oklahoma urban forests
and thereby helping to Keep Oklahoma Beautiful.
OKLAHOMA FORESTRY SERVICES, THE URBAN FORESTRY COUNCIL AND TREE CITY USA ALL GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA'S ENVIRONMENT!
