2021 Tree City USA Statistics and Community Recognition

The 2021 Tree City USA Summary is out, and with it is great news for Wisconsin’s Urban Forests!

Wisconsin communities reported planting 29,370 trees and spending $48,120,648 on Urban Forestry Management.

There are 201 Tree City USA communities within the Wisconsin, and 59.75% of the state lives in a Tree City USA community. Of the previous Tree City USA communities, 99% have been recertified to the program!

We deeply appreciate the commitment to urban forestry demonstrated by our 2021 Tree City, Tree Campus and Tree Line USA participants. Thank you for your hard work.

We want to celebrate Ephraim and Ledgeview for their first year as a Tree City USA community. Ephraim is also the smallest community that is a Tree City USA community, with a population of 325.

We would also like to recognize Sheboygan for being Wisconsin’s longest-running active Tree City USA Community (44 years!) and the first Tree City of the World located in Wisconsin. Congratulations, Sheboygan! (Click here to find out how you can become a Tree City of the World.)
