Tree and Beautification Committee

City of Driggs Arbor Day 2016

The Tree and Beautification Committee supports the City in its effort to maintain and improve its urban forest and beautify the community. The Tree and Beautification Committee is responsible for planning the annual community Arbor Day celebration.  Both of these efforts have helped the City maintain the designation as a Tree City USA since 2002.
