ABOUT THE COMMISSION:
The City of Delaware Shade Tree Commission promotes the benefits of healthy city trees and vegetation. To fulfill its mission, the commission makes recommendations to the city government regarding the protection, selection, planting, and maintenance of trees within our city limits in order to advance efforts to preserve the existing urban forest. Benefits to city residents include improved air quality, water quality, reduced energy costs, increased property values, and enhanced social condition and beauty.
The City of Delaware has an urban forest of more than 14,000 trees valued at more than $14 million. Every year since 1981, the City of Delaware has been recognized as a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Foundation.
