Two Decades & Counting: Geneva Named A 'Tree City USA'

Third Street Reopens

Geneva has been named a "Tree City USA" member for the 20th time thanks to the City’s commitment to effective urban forest management.

The Arbor Day Foundation’s most recent recognition is based on meeting four core standards, including maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and an Arbor Day observance.

This spring, the City planted dozens of new parkway trees throughout Geneva.

Helping contribute to the cause, the City of Geneva’s Natural Resources Committee and Geneva Park District Foundation continued to raise money during February’s Wine, Cheese & Trees fundraiser. The money will be used by both groups to plant trees in Geneva’s parkways, parks and open space throughout the community.

People interested in a new parkway tree should visit the City’s website to learn more about our cost-sharing program.
