CITY OF GOSHEN TREE TAGS

These tags were attached temporarily to two Red Oak trees at the City of Goshen Annex Building (corner of S. 5th St and Jefferson St.).

They document the ecological benefits in dollar values which each tree provides to the residents of Goshen. They help to explain the need for the City’s urban tree Canopy Goal of 45 percent tree coverage by 2045.
