The Arbor Day Foundation has recognized the Eugene Water & Electric Board for a ninth consecutive year for its commitment to proper tree pruning, planting and care of the city's trees.

In naming EWEB a Tree Line USA award winner, the foundation noted that the utility met or exceeded five program standards that enhance and protect community forests.

"Trees are a critical part of urban landscapes all across the United States, said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Service providers like EWEB show that taking care of trees is good for business, good for customers and good for the community."

The Tree Line USA program promotes the dual goals of delivering safe and reliable electricity while maintaining healthy trees in urban areas.
