CLOSTER, N.J. -- The Arbor Day Foundation has named Closter a "Tree City USA" city for the 16th consecutive year, according to a statement from the borough.

The honor comes in response to Closter's "commitment to effective urban forest management," according to the statement.

Closter again joins the ranks of more than 3,400 other communities across the country that adhere to the four, core requirements of the Tree City USA program.

Those rules require that all communities eligible for the honor maintain a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a community forestry program with an annual budget of at least $2 per capita, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

According to the borough, trees provide multiple benefits to the local community when properly planted and maintained. They improve a neighborhood's visual appeal, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat.
