The City of Lemon Grove declared a Tree City
Lemon Grove, CA – On April 17, 2022, the City of Lemon Grove was named a Tree City by the Arbor Day Foundation in recognition of its commitment to constructive forest management. Recognition as a Tree City is demonstrated by the City’s commitment to addressing issues such as air quality, water resources, personal health and well-being, and extreme heat and flooding.
In celebrating Arbor Day, the City hosted its second Annual Arbor Day event on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at Treganza Heritage Park. The event featured a tree planting ceremony followed by a tree giveaway by city staff.
“Tree City USA communities see the positive effects of an urban forest firsthand. The trees being planted and cared for by the City of Lemon Grove are ensuring that generations to come will enjoy a better quality of life. Additionally, participation in this program brings residents together and creates a sense of civic pride, whether it’s through volunteer engagement or public education.” – Dan Lambe, CEO Arbor Day Foundation
