The Arbor Day Foundation has named the City of Newnan a 2022 Tree City USA. This is the 33rd year the city has received this designation, recognizing Newnan's "commitment to effective urban forest management."
"We are honored to be recognized for the 33rd year by the Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA. The City Council works hard to ensure our quality of life and we appreciate the city staff and our partnership with Plant Newnan as we make sure generations to come will enjoy this beautiful place we call home," said Mayor Keith Brady.
"Newnan achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program's four requirements: maintaining a tree board or department, having a tree care ordinance, dedicating an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita, and hosting an Arbor Day observance and proclamation."
