Oshkosh was named a 2012 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forestry management. This is the 32nd year Oshkosh has earned the national designation.

Oshkosh 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.

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

Cleaner air, improved storm water management, energy savings, increased property values and commercial acitivity are among the benefits enjoyed by Tree City USA communities.

More information on the program is available at arborday.org/TreeCity USA.
