To qualify as a Tree City USA community, a town or city must meet four standards established by the Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters.

  • A Tree Board or Department (Friends of Manchester Trees)

  • A Tree Care Ordinance (Our Town Tree Policy)

  • A Community Forestry Program with an Annual Budget of at Least $2 Per Capita

Annual Select Board Proclamation

The Friends of Manchester Trees has assisted the town each year in its successful application for this honor. As part of this program, the Friends of Manchester Trees asks the Select Board to proclaim Arbor Day in Manchester every April.
