City earns Tree City designation again
For the 10th year, the National Arbor Day Foundation has named the city of Lansing a Tree City USA community for its commitment to community forestry.
Lansing has again met the four standards to become a Tree City USA community: having a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program and an Arbor Day observance.
“We know that trees increase our property values and reduce energy usage while adding beauty to our neighborhoods,” said Mayor Kenneth Bernard. “We are proud to be a Tree City USA Community again.”
