The Arbor Day Foundation has named Concord, New Hampshire a Tree City USA community in honor of the City of Concord’s dedication to forestry management. Concord General Services’ Sustainable Street Tree Program is one of many ways the City of Concord continues to invest in the community’s urban forestry. The Sustainable Street Tree Program is an initiative to benefit the community with better air quality, provide shade, increase biodiversity, reduce storm water runoff, and offer a beautiful aesthetic to our city. The City of Concord currently plants approximately 25-30 trees a year within approved locations. Learn more about the Sustainable Tree Program.
The Concord Insider published a tree-themed issue on April 2, 2019. Learn more about what is being done in the City of Concord to preserve our urban canopy.
A "Learn from the Arborist: Tree Care for Homeowners" workshop was offered by the City of Concord, in partnership with the city’s Tree Committee, to offer residents information about planting trees, pruning, and caring for trees. AJ Dupere and Cory Keeffe from the NH Division of Forests and Lands-Urban and Community Forestry Program provided the information. They were joined by City of Concord Assistant Planner Beth Fenstermacher. If you missed the workshop, you can view a recording of the workshop below.
