Beloit Named Tree City USA

The City of Beloit is proud that its commitment to urban forestry management was recognized as a 2023 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation.

The City of Beloit has a proud history of committing itself to the planting and growth of trees throughout the community. It was honored for the 36th year with the Tree City USA distinction for its commitment to sound urban forestry management

The recognition is based on four criteria:

  •         A tree board or department
  •         A tree care ordinance
  •         An annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita
  •         An Arbor Day observance and proclamation

The City of Beloit planted 134 trees in city parks and terraces in 2023. A tree planting event to commemorate Arbor Day will be held at 9am Friday, April 26, in Regina Dunkin Park, 1218 Henry Ave.

Additionally, forestry will hand out Serbian spruce trees for residents to plant at home on Saturday, May 18, during the Beloit Farmers’ Market as part of the annual Public Works Week display (while supplies last).
