Miami Lakes designated Tree City USA Sterling City

Miami Lakes, FL -The Town of Miami Lakes continues to be recognized for its abundant, beautiful tree canopy and exceptional tree management. Miami Lakes has received Tree City USA status for 12 straight years and recipient of the Tree City USA Growth Award for 10 straight years. This now makes Town of Miami Lakes a “Sterling City.”

The Tree City USA program has been greening up cities and towns across America since 1976. It is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees.

More than 3,400 communities have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA. They have achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.

The Tree City USA Growth Award is awarded by the Arbor Day Foundation to recognize higher levels of tree care by participating Tree City USA communities. The Growth Award highlights innovative programs and projects as well as increased commitment of resources for urban forestry. It also provides an opportunity to share new ideas and successes across the country.

A community that has earned 10 Growth Awards is recognized as a Sterling Tree City USA. Sterling communities are regarded as leaders in community forestry and are often looked upon as innovators.

The Town comprehensive Tree Management Plan has established an organized, proactive tree maintenance program to ensure Miami Lakes and its trees continue "Growing Beautifully."
