The City of Eau Claire has received the Honor of Tree City USA for the past 39 years (and counting)! The Tree City USA program is a national program that provides the framework for community forestry management for cities and towns across America.
To achieve the status of Tree City USA, our community had to meet four core standards of urban forestry management. These standards include: maintaining a tree department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.
Eau Claire is one of 3,400 Tree City USA communities that have demonstrated a commitment to caring for and managing their public trees.
