Through a long-term partnership the Alabama Forestry Commission, the National Association of State Foresters, the USDA Forest Service, and the Arbor Day Foundation (ADF) have supported recognition programs within the State of Alabama. These programs require applicants to meet standards that lead to better managed urban forests. Current programs include Tree City USA, the oldest of the recognition programs that recognizes municipalities, Tree Campus USA for college and university campuses, and Tree Line USA for utilities.
