The Village of Lombard was named a 2015 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its ongoing commitment to effective urban forest management.

To recognize Arbor Day and its ongoing Tree City USA status, the Village of Lombard is inviting residents to attend an Arbor Day Celebration on April 29th.

Started in 1976, the Tree City USA program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year. Residents who wish to recognize Arbor Day and the Village’s ongoing Tree City USA status, are invited to attend a small ceremony at Hammerschmidt School, near the intersection of New Street and Stewart Ave., at 1 p.m. on Friday, April 29th, to add mulch to recently planted Oaks and Kentucky Coffeetrees.

Lombard achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program's four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

"Trees City USA communities see the impact that an urban forest has in their community first hand,” said Dan Lambe, President of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Additionally, recognition brings residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it’s through volunteer engagement or public education.

Trees provide multiple benefits to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.
