Portsmouth NH Awarded Tree City USA

Portsmouth NH Homes Benefits from
10 Years of Tree City USA Awards

Overlooking South Mill Pond

Portsmouth New Hampshire has been honored with its 10th award for being a Tree City USA city.

This national honor recognizes those communities that have worked hard to put in place standards that help to get a plan in place, and keep it going, toward “annual systematic management of its tree resources”.


There are 4 standards that the Arbor Day Foundation has in place that all towns or cities must meet in order to qualify to be a Tree City USA community.

  1. A Tree Board or Department
  2. A Tree Care Ordinance
  3. A Community Forestry Program With an Annual Budget of at Least $2 Per Capita
  4. An Arbor Day Observance and Proclamation

Those looking to make Portsmouth NH their home, and those of us who already make Portsmouth home, get to fully enjoy the benefits of living in a Tree City USA city.  Everywhere you look around town, you see beautiful trees of a wide variety.  They’re wonderful to see everywhere, and the beautiful trees here in Portsmouth help to let the world know we enjoy a great quality of live here in the Port City of Portsmouth NH.

The City of Portsmouth annually puts a call to action to the residents here to make suggestions on areas of town that could benefit from having a tree planted.  Since Portsmouth has been doing this, 162 trees have been planted in the last 6 years, and we’ll have more continuing to be planted.

A meandering drive through Portsmouth will show you how lovely our beautiful little city is – and the trees are the icing on the cake of home in Portsmouth NH!
