DeKALB – DeKalb received a 2012 Tree City USA designation from the Arbor Day Foundation for its dedication to urban forest management.

The program has 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.

This is the 15th year DeKalb has received this designation. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.
