Charlottesville Named One Of 50 Tree Cities


April 24, 2007

Charlottesville was one of 50 Virginia communities honored Tuesday with a Tree City USA certification.

The Department of Forestry held a ceremony at the Doubletree Hotel to honor the winners. Overall, the 50 communities invested more than $21 million to meet Tree City USA standards.

The Forestry Department says the substantial investment makes the community a better place to live.

"The whole aspect of having the tree-lined streets and having the trees in the parks makes the community a much more pleasant place to live in," said Barbara White, Virginia Department of Forestry.

This is the first time that Charlottesville has been honored with this distinction.
