In 2022, the Town was named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation for the 42nd consecutive year, honoring its commitment to its community forest. In order to become a Tree City USA, a community must have a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. Each year, the Town coordinates a community celebration and plants trees in honor of Arbor Day. 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.
