LINCOLN, Neb.—Watertown has been named a 2020 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.

Watertown achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements of having a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least two-dollars per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

The Arbor Day Foundation is a non-profit conservation and education organization with the mission of inspiring people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees.
