Scottsdale earns 38th consecutive 'Tree City USA' designation

Scottsdale is proud to announce that it has earned its 38th consecutive designation as a ‘Tree City USAlinks to external site’ from the Arbor Day Foundationlinks to external site. This was achieved by maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.

Trees benefit our community in a variety of ways, including increasing property values, reducing energy consumption, uniting neighborhoods, provide much-needed cooling, clean our air and beautifying our neighborhoods.

Scottsdale has a long commitment to trees in our communities, and while we cannot celebrate Arbor Day publicly this year, we encourage everyone in Scottsdale to celebebrate Arbor Day at home!

If you post a picture of a tree using the hashtag #ArborDayAtHome, the Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree for you in our nation's forest. Be sure to tag @ArborDayFoundation in your post. Find more information online at to external site.
