The City of Savannah has been named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation since 1985 in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management. This is in recognition of the City 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.
