Tree City USA

 Westmont has been named Tree City USA every year since 1996 in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.  The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. 

Trees are assets to the community when properly planted and maintained.  To encourage tree planting in the community, Westmont offers three programs for residents; the Parkway Tree Planting Program, the Tree Seedling Giveaway and the Fall Native Tree and Shrub Plant Sale.  These programs promote planting with locally acclimated, long-lived, diverse tree species to increase the health and vitality of our urban forest.
