Delaware Tree-Friendly Community Program
Tree-Friendly Community Awards recognize Delaware
communities that have an active community forestry program.
To qualify as a Tree-Friendly Community, you must have fulfilled (3) of the following:
 Performed an annual ceremony to promote your community’s and our state’s urban
forest resources. This may be an Arbor Day, Earth Day, or another community
ceremony that educates the public and promotes the importance of trees within your
community.
 Conducted a tree project within your community that enhances existing urban forest
resources. This can include planting trees within a community-owned open space,
trimming of community-owned street trees, or a similar project that demonstrates a
commitment to maintaining your community’s existing urban forest resources.
 Developed a community forestry management plan in cooperation with the Delaware
Forest Service U&CF Program. Management plans should guide the management of
urban forestry resources for at least a five year period.
 Developed a community tree ordinance that protects trees.
 Formulated a tree commission or tree board that serves as the guiding body for tree
related decisions throughout the community.
 Had a tree budget of $1 per household for residential communities.
Communities will receive a complimentary sign to let the public know they are committed
to maintaining their forest resources and our state’s environment. This certification is good
for two years, after which it can be renewed. To see if your community qualifies as a
Delaware Tree-Friendly Community, please complete the attached application. If you have
