The city has again been named a “Tree City USA” community by the Arbor Day Foundation. This is the second year in a row Newcastle has been honored for its commitment to community forestry.

Newcastle met the four standards to become a “Tree City” community: having a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
