Support Your Local Trees, Join the Board

The City of Hamilton Tree Advisory Board is seeking volunteers to fill two seats opening on the Board later this summer. Each position is a three-year term beginning September 2015 and ending August 31, 2018. The Board administers regular and special meetings at which the citizens of the City may discuss the subject of the City’s trees. Regular meetings are held the second Thursday of every month at 6:30 PM in the Council Chambers at 345 High Street, Hamilton, Ohio, 45011.

The Board also has a key focus to meet four key criteria to apply for the Tree City USA designation as directed by the National Arbor Day Foundation of Nebraska City, Nebraska. The Tree City USA is a designation the City has proudly held since 2004. The criteria include:

  • A tree board that meets at least 8 times a year.
  • An Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
  • A comprehensive tree ordinance.
  • A community forestry program with an annual budget of at least $2 per capita.

Anyone wishing to submit their name in nomination for a position on the Board should contact Mark Murray

HEY! Hamilton! welcomes polite discourse, but all comments are moderated and will not appear with the post until they have been approved by the editor, which could be soon, could be tomorrow. Could be never if you're being a troll. Thank you.
