Town of Tonawanda named a Tree City

The dedication of a Crimson King maple tree, donated by the Kenmore Garden Club, will celebrate the Town of Tonawanda's commitment to the environment and its re-designation as a Tree City USA, at 9 a.m. Friday on Paramount Island, at Colvin Boulevard and Paramount Parkway.

This is the 20th consecutive year that the Town of Tonawanda has been named a Tree City USA, which is a designation sponsored by the National Arbor Day Foundation, the National Association of State Foresters and United States Forest Service.

To become a Tree City USA a community must have a tree board, a tree ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program and an Arbor Day observance.
