Mason City Tree City USA Growth Award Recipient
Posted on Thursday April 04, 2019
Congratulations to Mason City for being recognized as a Tree City USA Growth Award award winner! This is the 4th year Mason City has been honored with the designation as a Tree City USA Growth Award recipient.
Mason City was one of 16 Iowa communities in Iowa to qualify for Tree City USA Growth status. To receive the award, a city must, at a minimum, provide education and public relations; partnerships; planning and management; and tree planting and maintenance in their communities.
“The Tree City USA award is a symbol for communities who have made a commitment to the management of public trees,” says state forester Jeff Goerndt. “Mason City has provided an outstanding example for other Iowa communities by enhancing our forest resources and demonstrating the great value of trees in providing multiple benefits for future generations.”
The award was presented by the Arbor Day Foundation and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources April 3rd at the Sheraton in West Des Moines.
