Tree City USA Recognition Day

The Beloit Tree Board and the City of Beloit will be hosting “Celebrating 41 years of TCUSA and Kansas Community Forestry” on Thursday, March 23rd at the First Christian Church.  The City of Beloit has been recognized as a Tree City for 40 years.

One of the featured keynote speakers will be Beloit’s native son, Fred Deneke, along with his brother Stan.  Fred is considered one of the early founders of Community Forestry and the TCUSA program.

Tree City USA program has been greening up cities and towns across America since 1976.  It is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees.

More than 3,400 communities have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA.  The have achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standard of sound urban forestry management:  maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.

For more information on Tree City USA Recognition Day, contact Lynn Miller, Parks & Rec, at 738-2270.
