Tree planting set for April 17 at Benham’s Grove

The City of Centerville and the City Beautiful Commission will celebrate Arbor Day with a ceremonial tree planting at 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at Benham’s Grove, 166 N Main St. Third grade students representing each of the nine elementary schools serving Centerville will join Mayor Compton and members of City Council to plant trees. This event also commemorates Centerville’s 33rd consecutive year earning the Tree City USA award. Again this year, the City also earned a Growth award.

Centerville joins 40 other communities in southwest Ohio achieving Tree City USA status. Conceived in 1976, Tree City USA is a national program administered locally by state foresters using four standards to evaluate a community's commitment to its urban forest resource: 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.
