Did you know that the National Arbor Day Foundation has given the City of Manitowoc the Tree City USA designation each year since 1983? As a Tree City USA, Manitowoc must meet the criteria for the following four standards:
A tree department
A tree care ordinance
A comprehensive community forestry program
An Arbor Day observance & proclamation
The City of Manitowoc hosts an Arbor Day celebration on the last Friday of April each year. The Izaak Walton League generously donates trees to the City of Manitowoc to be planted on that day. In honor of Arbor Day, plant a tree in your yard or contribute to a local beautification project. Celebrate Arbor Day Each Year - Plant A Tree!
