Did you know that for the last 30 plus consecutive years, Hayward has been awarded the “Tree City USA” award by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effectively manage our urban forest? 

Since 1985, an Arbor Day celebration has been held in Hayward, with the celebration being a partnership between the City of Hayward, Hayward Unified School District (HUSD), and the Hayward Area Recreation District (HARD).  This year’s event will include presentations, mascots, information booths, a choir and tree plantings.
