Galveston recognized as Tree City USA

Tree City USA designation

Thanks to the efforts of the City of Galveston Tree Committee, the Galveston Island Tree Conservancy and many committed residents, Galveston earned the designation of Tree City USA for the second year in a row.

 The Arbor Day Foundation recognized Galveston for its efforts replanting trees post-Hurricane Ike by naming the community a Tree City USA. The foundation recognizes cities that create forestry programs, establish tree regulations and take other actions to care for trees. 

 The tree conservancy and volunteers for the tree committee have planted nearly 20,000 trees since Hurricane Ike. Congratulations and many thanks to all the people who have invested their time, energy and money to care for trees in Galveston.
