Tree City USA flag image Opens in new windowThe Arbor Day Foundation has awarded communities as Tree Cities since 1976 in an effort to provide framework for communities to manage and expand their public trees. As of 2019, Verona has been a Tree City for 25 years. To have Tree City status a community must meet four requirements, which are maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.
