Tree City USA 

The City of Augusta has held Tree City USA status continually since 2000, and in years prior to consolidation with Richmond County. A variety of groups work to keep Augusta a Tree City USA community, including the Recreation, Parks and Facilities Department, the city’s Engineering Department, the Augusta Tree Commission and Trees For Augusta.

The Augusta Tree Commission recently conducted a partial tree inventory and urban canopy study for the Downtown and Summerville areas of the City.
