   For the 22
   nd
    consecutive year , the City of Hot Springs was named a Tree City USA® by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of the City’s commitment to effective urban forest management .
   Hot Springs achieved the 2021 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 .
   Allen Bates is the City’s Urban Forester and one of the City’s two certified arborists ( the other being Freddy Padilla of the Urban Forestry crew ) , and he hosted tree giveaways in 2021 to supplement the lack of the Arbor Day event in Hot Springs , which had to be canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID - 19 pandemic .
   The Arbor Day event is returning this year , and it is scheduled for 9 a . m . – 1:30 p . m . on Friday , April 29 , at Entergy Park , which will be closed to the public from 7 a . m . – 2 p . m .
   Fifth - grade students from Fountain Lake , Jessieville and Mountain Pine school districts will be attending the Arbor Day event , which will feature eight educational stations through which the students rotate to get hands - on information about a range of topics . The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is scheduled to bring their fish tank and there will be a sawmill demonstration . Others involved will be Arkansas Urban Forestry Council , Arkansas Department of Agriculture Forestry Division , Entergy , West Tree Service and U . S . Corps of Engineers . Mayor Pat McCabe will present an Arbor Day Proclamation , and the program will conclude with the planting of a tree at the park . City departments/divisions that are involved include Parks & Trails , Stormwater , Street and Urban Forestry .
    On behalf of the Arbor Day Foundation , I congratulate Hot Springs on earning recognition as a 2021 Tree City USA , said Dan Lambe , president of the Arbor Day Foundation . We are so thrilled that Hot Springs takes pride in creating a community that places unique value on the planting and caring of trees . ”
   The Tree City USA program is one of the Arbor Day Foundation’s earliest programs , but its relevance in recent years has become more of a priority .
   “It has become increasingly clear of the value and importance that trees hold for our future . Cities and towns across the globe are facing challenges when it comes to air quality , water resources , personal health and well - being , and energy use . Hot Springs shows its residents and peers that they are forward - thinking and eager to combat these issues . By showing your dedication to urban forestry , you demonstrate a commitment to a brighter , greener future , ” said Lambe .
