Issaquah joined 81 other cities this year being recognized as a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation.

Issaquah has been recognized as a Tree City USA for 20 years.

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources recognizes cities that earn the Tree City USA title for their efforts in keeping urban forests healthy and vibrant, according to a press release from the department.

To be acknowledged as a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation, a city must designate staff to care for trees, appoint a citizen tree board to advocate for community forestry, establish a tree ordinance, spend at least $2 per capita on tree care and celebrate Arbor Day.
