Tree City USA

The Town of Manlius is proud to be an official Tree City as part of the Tree City USA program with the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.  In 2022 the Town of Manlius will be in its 19th year as a Tree City to learn more go to the Tree City USA Program webpage


To qualify as a Tree City USA community, a town or city must meet 4 standards established by The Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters. 

  • An Arbor day Observance or Proclamation    
  • A Community Forestry program 
  • A Tree Care Ordinance   
  • A Tree Commission

These standards were established to ensure that every qualifying community would have a viable tree management plan and program.
