Officials got word last month that the town will be named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation for the third year, according to Town Administrator Michael McCue.

To qualify, communities must have a tree department, spend at least $2 per capita on urban forestry, enforce laws protecting public trees, and host an Arbor Day celebration, McCue said.
