Kingsport was named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation. This is the sixteenth year Kingsport has received this national recognition.
The Tree City USA program is sponsored by The National Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.
To become a Tree City USA, a community must meet four standards: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance.
"An effective community forestry program is an ongoing process of renewal and improvement - a program of tree planting and care that continues through the years," John Rosenow, The National Arbor Day Foundation President, said. "The Tree City USA award is an excellent indication that there is a solid foundation for that process of improvement."
The City of Kingsport Landscape Division practices standard arboriculture. This department does not do tree topping.

What is tree topping?

Tree topping is the excessive removal of all parts of a tree above and beyond a certain height with no regard for the structure and growth pattern of the tree. The practice of topping is so wide spread that many people believe it is the proper way to prune trees. Pruning is the selective removal of certain limbs based on the structure or growth pattern of the tree. Go to for more information on tree topping. Any and all tree maintenance that is on city property is to be done by the city. This includes city owned lots, parks, right of ways, etc. If you need any tree work done in your area, please contact our office at (423) 229-9451.
