Tree City USA

The City of Noblesville has continued to earn the designation of Tree City USA for the past 31 years. The city has held this designation longer than any other city in Hamilton County.

The Tree City USA program started in 1979. Only four cities in Indiana that have participated longer than Noblesville – Bloomington, Indianapolis, Elkhart and Angola. Noblesville received 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. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation, in partnership with the United States Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.
