Tree City, USA under the Arbor Day Foundation is a tremendous program providing resources for local communities to become a Tree City.
I'm on the Board for Carbondale, PA (our BIG town ~ pop. 10,000!) which was a coal-mining ghost town until the recent natural gas upswing. Today, it's streets are lined with beautiful, healthy trees ~ many flowering ~ and the ugly acres and acres of black coal scrap hills are turning green again.

It has been estimated that Sandy took out over 10,000 adult trees in Union Co., NJ alone. The neghboring town to me that one had gorgeous maples and oaks are gone.
People have spent so much money rebuilding their homes, they have given no throught to re-planting. I hope at some point this is considered.
