Kingston Earns Tree City USA Status For 23rd Year
The Municipality of Kingston was once again honored by the National Arbor Day Foundation and Pennsylvania DCNR Bureau of Forestry for its work planting and protecting its community trees. For 23 years, Kingston has been designated a Tree City USA because it has a tree commission, municipal ordinance protecting its street trees, spends $2 per capita on trees, and celebrates Arbor Day each year. Kingston is one of only three communities in Luzerne County and 111 in Pennsylvania that receives this honor each year. First row, from left, are Margaret Neville, Robert Thompson Jr., Mayor Paul Roberts, Nancy Cooper, Tim Latz, DCNR Forester, and Roberta Rowlands. Second row: Vincent Cotrone, Urban Forester, Anthony Dicton, Paul Keating, Rob Jacobs, and Jack Schumacher.
