The Arbor Day Foundation has again honored the City of Manassas with a Tree City USA designation because of the city's commitment to effective urban forest management, according to a release.
“The City is honored to be a Tree City USA,” said City Manager John A. Budesky. “In becoming a Tree City, the City of Manassas benefits with cleaner air, improved storm water management and energy savings, which helps to increase our property values and commercial activity.”
