The Tree City USA program has been greening up cities and towns across America since 1976. It is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees.
The City of Novi has proudly been an Arbor Day Foundation Tree City USA designee for over two decades and has received numerous Tree City USA Growth Awards. Novi is recognized annually because of our demonstrated excellence in education, public relations, tree planting, and tree management planning.
The Tree City USA program is sponsored by The Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.
Novi has met the four standards to become a Tree City USA:
• A tree board or department,
• A tree care ordinance,
• A comprehensive community forestry program, and
• An Arbor Day observance.
