Congratulations to us! Royal Oak was named a 2018 Tree City USA by the Arbor Foundation in honor of our commitment to effective urban forest management.
Last year, using funds from the community development block grant program, 688 trees were purchased and planted in our hometown. (Community development staff are already working on this year's tree planting program!)
Royal Oak is one of only two municipalities in Michigan that have earned Tree City USA designation since the award's inception in 1976.
