Photographer's Note

Urbana has received national recognition by being named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters every year since 1976.

Urbana boasts of having 95% of its parkways planted in trees, a comprehensive forestry management plan, parking lot landscape ordinances, a cooperative tree planting program, public/private greenspace partnerships and capital improvements as well as downtown tax increment financing districts (TIF) which consider tree planting and greenspace as a part of infrastructure development.
