City of Germantown , state Tennessee

   National Arbor Day is April 29 and this year marks the 150th anniversary of the tree planter’s holiday . In the state of Tennessee and in Germantown , Arbor Day is typically observed on the first Friday in March . This
    year also marked a special Arbor Day celebration for the City of Germantown , as the City was selected by Governor Bill Lee to be the host location for the 2022 State Arbor Day Celebration . This honor is determined by the selected City’s previous year efforts to develop and implement a robust community urban forestry program .  
   Leading the City’s efforts in maintaining our lush and healthy tree canopy are Parks and Recreation Director Pam Beasley and Natural Resource Manager/City Arborist Wes Hopper . For three decades , the City of Germantown has been recognized as a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation . For the third year in a row , the City has also been recognized as a Tree City of the World . Both these recognitions cannot be met without reaching the following overarching standards:
   
   
   Maintaining a tree board or department
   
   
   
   Having a community tree ordinance
   
   
   
   Spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry
   
   
   
   Celebrating Arbor Day
   
   
   
   Maintaining an updated inventory or assessment of the local tree resource ( Tree City of the World only )
   
   Through Pam’s leadership and Wes’ expertise , three public parks in Germantown have become certified arboretums through the Tennessee Urban Forestry Council - Riverdale Elementary , Oaklawn Garden and most recently , Poplar Estates Park . Each of the parks have significance to the community and deserve attention; however , with its sheer diversity in plants and unique historical significance , Oaklawn Garden also landed a spot on the National Registry of Historic Places .  
   In a community that values its trees , having a group of volunteers who share in those same values is essential . The focus of the Tree Board is on preservation and protection of trees on public land . Through the stewardship of the Tree Board and the Beautification Commission , the City is able to educate residents and give away a variety of trees during its annual Arbor Day celebration .
