[ARCHIVED] Clarksville named Tree City USA for 34th year


The 2022 Tree City USA rankings have been announced, and Clarksville has been recognized for the 34th year by the program along with receiving commendation for 17 years of active growth.

Being named a Tree City USA for the 34th year signifies the City's commitment to forestry management guidelines and high visibility in stewardship of tree resources.

“Being awarded for another consecutive year is no surprise to me given the support we receive from the Clarksville community,'' City Forester Kathrine Killebrew said. “Whether we realize it or not, trees play a vital role in our everyday lives and it’s truly heartwarming to have the City and the Clarksville community support our programming year after year.”

The Tree City USA Growth Award recognizes communities where tree-care programs have significantly improved. 2022 marks the 17th year that the City has received this award, which reinforces the City’s forestry management successes.

The growth award supports the communication of new ideas by showing community leaders what can and should be done in a well-rounded community forestry program. Additionally, the criteria for receiving a Tree City USA Growth Award provides an excellent checklist for planning the future of a community forestry program.

The Arbor Day Foundation, in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the U.S. Forest Service, created the Tree City USA program to recognize environmental improvement and higher levels of tree care throughout America.
