City Earns “Tree City USA” Designation for Fifth Year in a Row

Posted on April 24, 2019 at 8:53 AM by Tonisha Beal

In recognition of its ongoing commitment to its community forest, the City of Fountain Valley has been named a “Tree City USA” city for the fifth year in a row. This prestigious national program, sponsored by the National Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service, recognizes environmental improvement and higher levels of tree care in Tree City USA communities.

The City of Fountain Valley values the important role that trees have in our community and diligently manages an urban forest of 12,462 trees located in City parks, civic facilities, right-of-ways, medians, and parkways.

Fountain Valley’s homeowners play an important role in maintaining the City’s urban forest by properly caring for and watering their parkway trees. Residential parkway trees belong to the homeowner, however, the City trims them every 2-3 years to maintain right-of-way clearance for pedestrians and vehicles.

Sadly, many parkway trees have been removed and not replaced over the years, leaving many residential streets looking bare. In order to encourage and promote parkway reforestation, the City will order, deliver and plant a new parkway tree of the homeowner’s choosing for just $35! Homeowners who are interested in increasing the curb appeal of their homes and beautifying their neighborhoods can stop by City Hall or contact the Public Works Department at 714-593-4433 for more information.
