Purpose

The Grants Pass Urban Tree Advisory Committee was established on March 2, 1988, to review, develop and implement programs and activities which promote, protect and enhance the urban forest as a part of the Tree City USA program.

Committee responsibilities include:

  • Promoting interest in the value of urban trees through community education, scheduling arbor events and encouraging tree planting and care
  • Reviewing the urban forestry program and making recommendations to the Council regarding that program

Through committee and city efforts, the City of Grants Pass has been named "Tree City USA" by the National Arbor Day Foundation for the past 26 years.
