Caldwell is the 2nd Longest Running "Tree City USA" in Idaho

The Forestry Department is committed to providing a healthy urban forest. It is our goal to provide the community with the most current information on the care of trees and shrubs.

The City of Caldwell has proudly been a Tree City U.S.A. member for the past 37 years. We celebrate Arbor Day every year, planting new trees in honor of this event. Being involved in this program shows as a community we are dedicated to preserving the beauty of our city. We are the second longest running Tree City USA in the state.
