IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- The village of Irvington was named a 2014 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban-forest management.

Irvington achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program's four requirements: a tree board or department; a tree-care ordinance; an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita; and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

"Everyone benefits when elected officials, volunteers and committed citizens in communities like Irvington make smart investments in urban forests," said Matt Harris, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Trees bring shade to our homes and beauty to our neighborhoods, along with numerous economic, social and environmental benefits."

Cleaner air, improved storm-water management, energy savings and increased property values and commercial activity are among the benefits enjoyed by Tree City USA communities.

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. For more information visit www.arborday.org/programs/treecityUSA.
