For the 21st year, East Windsor has earned the national designation of a Tree City USA community for meeting the four standards set by the Arbor Day Foundation: having a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance.

The Tree City Growth Award recognizes Tree City USA municipalities that achieve major milestones and annual activities that build upon their Tree City USA designation and combine to build sustainable community forestry programs over the long term. The program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.
