LAKE WORTH BEACH — The Arbor Day Foundation has named Lake Worth Beach a 2018 Tree City USA in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.

Lake Worth Beach achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

“Tree City USA communities see the impact an urban forest has in a community first hand,” said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation, in the news release.

“Additionally, recognition brings residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it’s through volunteer engagement or public education.”
