Entiat named Tree City USA

By Christine Pratt Wenatchee World

ENTIAT – The Arbor Day Foundation has named Entiat “Tree City USA” for the 16th consecutive year, the city announced Wednesday.

Each city considered for the distinction must meet three requirements – have an established tree board or department, have a tree-care ordinance, allocate an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and ensure the city officially observes Arbor Day.

The recognition “brings residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it’s through volunteer engagement or public education,” Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation, said in a news release.

The foundation is a million-member nonprofit dedicated to conservation, education and inspiring people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees.
