Twisp likes its trees

For the 14th year, the Town of Twisp is among 84 cities recognized by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources as a Tree City USA, in recognition of efforts to keep urban forests healthy and vibrant. To be acknowledged as a Tree City, a city must have either a tree board or a city department that is responsible for tree care and management, establish a tree ordinance, spend at least $2 per capita on tree care, and celebrate Arbor Day. To participate in the Arbor Day celebration, contact Dwight Filer at 997-0522.
