Tree City USA

The City of York has been awarded Tree City USA designation for 25 years. This designation by the Arbor Day Foundation says the citizens of York are dedicated to the planting and care of trees in their environment. This designation has been helpful to the Park Department in being awarded grants for special tree projects over the years. The Tree Board plays an active role in maintaining York's commitment to the enjoyment of our trees.
