A Recognized Tree City Third Time

Fernandina Beach once again has been recognized as a Tree City by the international program, Tree Cities of the World.

To earn the title for the third year, Fernandina Beach demonstrated its commitment by meeting five program standards: establish responsibility for the care of trees, set rules to govern the management of forests and trees, maintain an updated inventory or assessment of local tree resources, allocate resources for a tree management plan and hold an annual celebration of trees to educate residents.

More information on the program is available at https://treecitiesoftheworld.org/.

The Arbor Day Foundation sponsors the program along with the United Nations.

Nice honor, but seems quite ironic given the destruction of trees happening here every single day.
