Madisonville Named Tree City USA by Arbor Day Foundation

 

TREE CITYMADISONVILLE, KY (3/5/12) - The City of Madisonville announces that it has been named a Tree City USA community by the National Arbor Day Foundation for the 17th time. The recognition results from the City of Madisonville’s commitment to community forestry.
 
The Tree City USA program is sponsored by The National Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service. Madisonville met the four standards required to be a Tree City USA community through having an active tree board, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance.
 
Mayor David Jackson stated, “The National Arbor Day Foundation continues to give credit to the important work of our Park Superintendent Chris Taylor and the park staff, the elected officials, and the volunteers of the Madisonville Tree Board. These individuals all play an important part in planting and caring for our community forest. It is a nice honor for all involved to be recognized by the Forest Service, Kentucky Division of Forestry, and The Arbor Day Foundation for their commitment to community forestry.”
 
Arbor Day chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation John Rosenow added, “We all benefit when communities like Madisonville place a high priority on planting and caring for trees, one of our nation’s most beautiful resources. Trees shade our homes and add beauty to our neighborhoods, and they also provide many environmental, economic and social benefits. We applaud Madisonville’s elected officials, volunteers, and citizens for providing vital care for its urban forest.”
 
The public is invited to the Madisonville Arbor Day celebration on Friday, April 6th beginning at 1:30 PM at the Odd Fellows Cemetery.
