Algonquin Named Tree City USA

The Village of Algonquin has been named a Tree City USA community by the Arbor Day Foundation for its continued commitment to effective urban forest management.  This year’s recognition marks the 26th consecutive year Algonquin has received this designation.

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.

To qualify as a Tree City USA community, communities must have a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, a community forestry program with annual expenditures of at least $2.00 per capita, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation – each of which Algonquin has met.

“We are proud to receive this honor through the efforts made by our urban forestry program,” stated Debby Sosine, Village President. “This recognition affirms the Village’s commitment to environmental stewardship.”

Additional benefits of Tree City USA communities receive through this designation include improved air quality, enhanced storm water management, annual energy savings, increased property values, and growth of commercial activity.

Algonquin continues to promote the role of trees and our natural environment in the community in hopes of preserving these resources and improving the quality of life for generations to come.
