The New Hampshire Arborists Association Community Beautification Awards Program was established in 1981 by the New Hampshire Arborists Association to encourage New Hampshire communities to have an increased awareness of the value and benefits of tree care and maintenance as well as landscape beautification.
Certified Arborists judge NH Communities based on four criteria:
Maintenance of Existing Trees, Shrubs and Flowers
Planting in Public Areas
Enthusiasm and Spirit of those actively involved in the Beautification Projects
Overall Community Appearance – Cleanliness, Aesthetics, and Initiative in Public Areas

Dear Community Leaders: We invite you to submit an application. The New Hampshire Arborists Association wants to reward your New Hampshire community for its work on community beautification (no matter how small the project).

CONGRATULATIONS to the twenty communities that are winners of our Community Beautification Awards Program in 2009. These communities are recognized for their outstanding efforts in public landscape management and beautification.

Award Presentations were made at a State House Ceremony on May 1, 2009.
