The Village of Deer Park has qualified for the ninth year in a row as a Tree City USA. In order to become a Tree City, the Village has to meet four standards:
A Tree Board
A Tree Care Ordinance
Community Forestry Program
An Arbor Day Observance and Proclamation
The Village of Deer Park has also qualified for the fourth year for the Tree City USA Growth Award which is presented by the Arbor Day Foundation to participating Tree City USA communities that demonstrate higher levels of tree care and community engagement during the calendar year. The Growth Award recognizes major milestones and annual activities in five categories that combine to build sustainable community forestry programs over the long term.
