Norcross Recognized as a Tree City USA

Congratulations Norcross! Norcross was one of 34 Georgia cities recognized as a Tree City USA during the state Arbor Day celebration at Trees Atlanta. Tree City USA provides the framework for community forestry management in cities and towns nationwide that meet certain requirements, including the establishment of a tree board or department, a community tree ordinance, specific spending levels for urban forestry and planned Arbor Day celebrations. There are 150 Tree Cities USA in Georgia, and nearly 30 percent of the state's population lives in a Tree City. Nationwide, more than 3,400 Tree City USA communities serve as home to about 135 million Americans.
