Ponca City celebrates Arbor Day

Ponca City Now - March 14, 2016 7:44 pm

Ponca City Mayor Homer Nicholson proclaimed Monday Arbor Day in Ponca City as part of the city’s participation in “Tree City USA.”

Ponca City is one of 23 Oklahoma communities to earn the “Tree City USA” designation in 2016.

More than 3,400 communities have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA. They have achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.

Nicholson presented the proclamation to Park and Recreation Department Director Jim Sindelar.
