MADISON, Wis. - Six individuals and organizations earned recognition from the Wisconsin Urban Forestry Council for their efforts to protect, preserve and increase the number of trees that line city streets, fill community parks and beautify neighborhoods throughout the state.

The Wisconsin Urban Forestry Council advises the Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry on the best ways to manage urban and community forest resources. The awards are a way to recognize and thank individuals and organizations for their work and commitment to the trees, plantings, habitat and economic benefits they provide, said Kristin Gies, co-chair of the Wisconsin Urban Forestry Council's award committee.

Following are recipients of the awards, which were announced recently at the 2016 Wisconsin Arborist Association/DNR conference in Green Bay.

Interested in previous winners? Have ideas for nominees? The deadline for 2017 nominees is Oct. 31, 2016. However, you can nominate your community tree champions any time. Learn more by visiting and searching for the Wisconsin Urban Forestry Council.
