Arbor Day Foundation Names Dardenne Prairie Tree City USA

April 2, 2019

Dardenne Prairie, MO, was named a 2018 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.


Dardenne Prairie 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.


"Tree City USA communities see the impact an urban forest has in a community first hand," said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Additionally, recognition brings
residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it's through volunteer
engagement or public education."


Trees provide multiple benefits to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.
More information on the program is available at arborday.org/treeCityUSA.


About the Arbor Day Foundation: The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member nonprofit
