Struthers is now officially recognized as a “Tree City.”

Struthers’ Mayor showed a proclamation for the city now on a mission to make trees and the environment a priority in the city.

Mayor Catherine Cercone Miller says it’s an important step for the future of Struthers.

“This is a big step for the future of us. It is something we really need to pay attention to. Not only as residents but the entire city and administration, city council,” said Miller.

Struthers achieved national recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements that include: having a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a forestry budget of at least $2-dollars per capita, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
