Have you ever wondered what the street tree is in front of your home or what the overall environmental benefits are for all of the city’s trees? The City of Bowling Green has more than 7,600 trees growing in the right of way or on city property. Each tree is entered in the city’s tree inventory. The public can now access the tree inventory to look up a city tree or learn about the environmental benefits the city’s trees provide on the TreeKeeper website.
To view a guide for using the tree inventory or to find other information on caring for trees, visit the Arborist website.
Bowling Green has a history of making a strong commitment to its trees. The city has been named a Tree City USA community by the Arbor Day Foundation for 38 years. Additionally, BG has received the Growth Award 24 times – the most in Ohio – for enhancing its tree program.
