Rowlett Named Tree City USA for 16th Consecutive Year!

Tree City USA logo

For the 16th year in a row, the City of Rowlett has once again been named a Tree City USA!

The Tree City USA program has been greening up cities and towns across America since 1976. It is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees.

More than 3,400 communities have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA. The City of Rowlett has achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.

Congratulations and a big THANK YOU to the Rowlett Parks and Recreation Department for their ongoing dedication to maintaining the natural beauty of our community and enhancing our quality of life!
