The City of Eagle Point has been declared a Tree City for 19 consecutive year by the Arbor Day Foundation. This year Arbor Day was proclaimed on April 7, 2011, by the mayor of Eagle Point by dedicating the trees at Centennial Plaza. Tree City USA is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in coordination with the U.S. Forest Service.
We continue to improve our Urban Forest Program each year and welcome your ideas. Arbor Day was first observed with the planting of more than 1 million trees in Nebraska in 1872.
