Spring Hill, KS is One of the Tree Cities of the Year
Spring Hill was recently bestowed with the distinction of being the Tree City of the Year for 2018 by the distinguished Arbor Day Foundation. The rural community is a hop, skip, and jump outside Kansas City. For the last 23 years, the community has received the honor. It is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan city and soak up the rolling hills and green landscapes. The city was founded in 1856 and still retains its small town feel.
Requirements to Become a Tree City USA
In order for Spring Hill to be granted such an impressive honor, the city must meet certain requirements. Without a doubt, the community has been happy to comply. Everyone in Spring Hill takes great price in the outstanding trees and landscape that makes the small town an iconic place beloved by everyone who lives there or simply passes through.
Here are the following requirements:
- A board or department dedicated to the city’s trees
- Tree care ordinance
- Community forest budget of $2 per capita.
- An Arbor Day proclamation or observance
Dan Lambe, the president of the Arbor Day Foundation explains, “Tree City USA communities see the impact an urban forest has in a community first hand. Additionally, recognition brings residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it’s through volunteer engagement or public education. Trees provide multiple benefits to a community when properly plants and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.”
