LINDEN—Linden has been named a Tree City USA community by the Arbor Day Foundation to honor its commitment to community forestry. It is the sixth year Linden has received this national recognition.
The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.
Communities that receive Tree City USA recognition recognize that:
• Trees promote healthier communities. Leaves filter the air we breathe by removing dust and other particles.
• Trees moderate climate, conserve water and provide habitat for wildlife.
• Trees in urban areas reduce the heat island effect caused by pavement and buildings.
• Properly placed trees can increase property values, and buildings in wooded areas rent more quickly and tenants stay longer.
The Arbor Day Foundation is a nonprofit, environment, an education organization of nearly one million members, with a mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees.
