Milford has been designated a Tree City, USA community

The city of Milford has been designated a Tree City U.S.A. community by The National Arbor Day Foundation.

This is the second year in a row that Milford has received the national designation.

The Tree City U.S.A. program, which is sponsored by the National Arbor Day Foundation, was established in 1976 as a way of encouraging local communities to actively participate in the planting, maintenance, and management of the trees and shrubs.

Tree City U.S.A., in cooperation with the National Association of State Forests and the USDA Forest Service, also provides financial assistance and national recognition to those communities which meet the selection criteria.
