Winter Springs Mayor Kevin McCann said the recognition highlights the City’s commitment to cleaner air, healthier residents, and overall quality of life.


"Although not surprised, I am pleased that Winter Springs has for the 35th year obtained the designation of "Tree City USA" by the Arbor Day Foundation. As Central Florida continues to grow, we are committed to preserving our community's unique charm," McCann said.

Every year, the City of Winter Springs holds its Arbor Day tree giveaway, where Winter Springs residents can sign up to receive a free tree.

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the United States Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.


Winter Springs residents can sign up for a free tree for the City’s annual Tree Giveaway event beginning February 12, 2024. Registration is open to residents living in incorporated Winter Springs and is limited to one tree per address. Each resident who registers will have their new addition delivered free of charge and come with an informational guide to help care for and maintain it.
