Lilburn has been recognized as a Tree City USA community by the Arbor Day Foundation, the city announced via press release Friday afternoon.
It marks the fourth year Lilburn has earned the national designation.
A Tree City USA community must meet four standards to be considered: have a tree board or department; a tree-care ordinance; a community forestry program and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
“We commend Lilburn’s elected officials, volunteers and its citizens for providing vital care for its urban forest,” John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation, said in the press release.
“Trees provide numerous environmental, economical and health benefits to millions of people each day, and we applaud communities that make planting and caring for trees a top priority.”
