The city of Salem was named a 2019 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation, in honor of the city’s commitment to effective urban tree management. Salem achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. “Over the past several years Salem’s commitment to our public trees has grown substantially,” said Mayor Kim Driscoll. …The Arbor Day Foundation recently launched the Time for Trees initiative, with the unprecedented goal of planting 100 million trees in forests and communities and inspiring 5 million tree planters by 2022.
