Trees make our Town a special place to live. They shade our homes, our businesses, and our streets. They clean our air and water, reduce stormwater run-off, increase our property values, reduce energy costs and make our neighborhoods greener, safer, and healthier.

The Town of Beloit was presented with its first Tree City USA award for 2017 from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Tree City USA recognition from the Arbor Day Foundation highlights our commitment to urban forestry, community improvement, and civic pride.

Our trees are a vital asset. In fact, our green infrastructure is likely the only part of our Town’s infrastructure that actually increases in value and service over time. The Tree City USA program provides an outstanding framework for managing this important asset.
