Mexico Earns Tree City USA Designation for 2020

Mexico, Missouri is being named a 2020 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation.

Parks & Rec Director Chad Shoemaker says this isn’t a first for the City.

Mexico achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements of 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.
