Bernards Township is proud to be named a Tree City USA. This distinction is given by the National Arbor Day Foundation in recognition of communities that have proven their commitment to an effective, ongoing community forestry program marked by renewal and improvement.

In order to be honored as a Tree City USA community, four standards must be met:
  • A tree board or department
  • A tree care ordinance
  • A comprehensive forestry program
  • An Arbor Day observance
