COPLEY TREE CANOPY
Copley Township is dedicated to the preservation of the tree canopy found in our area. The Department of Community and Economic Development is committed to this mission through the engagement of tree preservation activities found in residential and commercial development.
Copley Township, OH, was named 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management. Copley achieved Tree City USA recognition for the first time by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. Copley is one of only four Township’s recognized as a Tree City USA in the state of Ohio.
Trees provide multiple benefits to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants, and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.
