Tree Management

Golden Valley's Urban Forestry Program ensures that public trees are properly managed and provides residents with the correct information to care for their own trees. The many wooded residential areas in Golden Valley act as important visual, aesthetic, and economic resources and add significantly to the quality of life and the value of property within the City.

Golden Valley has received the nationally recognized designation of Tree City USA for the past several years. Tree City USA was developed by the National Arbor Day Foundation, in conjunction with the United States Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, to recognize towns and cities across America that meet four standards: a community tree ordinance, a legal tree governing body, a comprehensive urban forestry program supported by a minimum of $2 per capita, and an annual observance of Arbor Day.
