Hayward is a "Tree City"
For the past 29 consecutive years, Hayward has been presented with the “Tree City USA” Award. Awarded by the Arbor Day Foundation, Hayward has earned this award by honoring its commitment to effectively manage our Urban Forest. To achieve this national recognition, Hayward has met the program's four requirements: 1) having a tree department, 2) having a tree-care ordinance, 3) having an annual tree budget of at least $2 per capita, and 4) having an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
