Peoria Named a Top Tree City

Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture and The Arbor Day Foundation recognize city for its efforts.

4/10/2012

The city of Peoria was recently recognized by the Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture with the 2011 International Society of Arboriculture Gold Leaf Award. The award was given for the city's Arbor Day celebration at Parkridge Elementary School

The city of Peoria successfully partnered with schools in the Peoria United School District to educate students and plant trees in empty spaces, creating areas of natural shade and installing a sense of stewardship within the children. The theme of these projects is “Step Under the Branches of our Urban Forest”, also known as SUB Urban Forest.

In 2011, Peoria’s Parks SUB Urban Forest Program collaborated with David Svornic’s 6th grade class and the other students from Parkridge Elementary School for an Arbor Day celebration and planted forty trees. The students were mentored by an arborist from the city, and guided through tree selection and design over a three month period. The students designed the planting, selected the tree’s species and led fellow students during the planting on Arbor Day.

The Arbor Day Celebration was held on April 29th, 2011 at Parkridge Elementary School in Peoria. Representatives from Arizona Department of Forestry, the Arizona Community Tree Council, the City of Peoria and APS joined the students and faculty in the celebration and tree planting.

Traditionally the Gold Leaf Award has been used to acknowledge outstanding Arbor Day efforts as well as a way to acknowledge outstanding landscape beautification efforts not associated with Arbor Day. Past winners include Disneyland Resort Arboriculture, California Oak Foundation, City of Encinitas, Calif., and Arizona Community Tree Council.

The Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture was formed in 1934. It is a nonprofit corporation comprised of over 3200 persons in Arizona, California, Hawaii and Nevada engaged or interested in the practice of arboriculture. The organization is dedicated to fostering a greater appreciation for trees by promoting research and education to advance the professional practice of arboriculture.

Peoria was also recognized as a Tree City USA by The Arbor Day Foundation. The Tree City USA program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, provides direction, technical assistance, public attention, and national recognition for urban and community forestry programs. The many benefits of being a Tree City include creating a framework for action, education, a positive public image, and citizen pride. This is the fourth year Peoria has been recognized as a Tree City USA.
