The City of Southport
Southport: A “Tree City” Since 2004
Southport’s 15th year designated as a Tree City USA
Tree City USA Standards
To qualify as a Tree City USA community, FOUR STANDARDS established by the Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters must be met. These standards were established to ensure that every qualifying community* would have a viable tree management program and that no community would be excluded because of size.
