Madison Parks Forestry accepting Heritage Tree Program nominations to Celebrate Madison Arbor Legacy

July 24, 2013 11:09 AM

The Madison Parks Forestry section is accepting nominations for the Heritage Tree Program. In  2012, the inaugural year of the program, three different trees or tree groves were recognized as Heritage trees.

To foster appreciation and inspire awareness of the contribution of city owned street trees and park trees to the City's history and heritage, Madison Parks Forestry will continue the Heritage Tree Program. The program is a way for citizens to officially recognize special and significant city owned trees in the community.

The goals of the Heritage Tree Program are:
• to recognize and designate individual city owned trees or groves of significance
• to educate and inform the public about the value and history of city owned trees
• to promote appreciation of the city owned trees
•  to maintain and protect these trees as part of the City's heritage

Communities across the country at a local, state and national level enact Heritage Tree Programs to grant trees special status for their age, size, type or historical association.

"Madison's parks and streets are filled with historic, natural landmarks," said Kevin Briski, Madison Parks Superintendent.  "This is our way of recognizing and celebrating the trees that have been a part of our community's history."

Madison's healthy and valuable trees are a living and distinct resource for the Madison community and now, trees can be nominated together or separately to receive this special status.

Each year up to 5 nominated trees will be selected. Heritage Trees will be announced during the Arbor Week celebration and posted on the website. Excellent candidates for the program will be healthy trees of exceptional size, form or rarity. They may carry historic or community significance.
