NB Receives 24th Tree City Award

…presented by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry.

Way to go NB!!!

The Village of North Baltimore was recognized as a Tree City USA in the Northwest Ohio awards ceremony hosted by the Village of Crestline and their Tree Commission on April 17th.  This is the 24th time our community has been honored with this nationally recognized award.

The awards were presented to the Tree City and Tree Campus USA communities by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry.  Featured speaker, Dr. David Kramer of OSU Mansfield, shared the historical significance of the Ohio buckeye tree. John Chapman, AKA Johnny Appleseed portrayed by Crawford County Park District Director Josh Dyer, also made an appearance to congratulate the awardees.

The title of Tree City USA was bestowed upon our community for its ongoing efforts to maintain and improved the quality of life through a comprehensive tree managements program.  The program is guided by the Tree Commission and the municipal government.

The Ohio DNR, Division of Forestry’s Urban forestry Assistance Program acts as a guiding hand in helping a community to become qualified as a Tree City USA.  The Regional Urban Forester recommends a community to the Arbor Day Foundation for this standing. In order to achieve the title and the honors, a community must meet four standards.

  • A Tree Ordinance
  • An active Tree Commission or forestry department
  • A comprehensive urban forestry program supported by a minimum of two dollars per capita
  • An annual Arbor Day proclamation and public observance

Ohio boasts the greatest number of Tree Cities in the country with a grand total of 240.  This marks Ohio’s 42nd consecutive year as the top Tree City USA state, according to the Ohio Division of Forestry.  50 Northwest Ohio communities are Tree Cities and two universities are honored as Tree Campus USAs (Ohio Northern University and the University of Findlay.)  All were recognized for their achievements at the awards ceremony in Crestline.

For additional information about the Tree City USA program or the Arbor Day Foundations, visit www.arborday.org .

North Baltimore will be holding the annual Arbor Day celebration at 11 am on Friday, April 26, at the NB High School – Middle School on Tiger Drive. The Village Tree Commission is donating a tree to the school in honor of Arbor Day.

Call 8-1-1 BEFORE you dig!

April is National Safe Digging Month

April is National Safe Digging Month
PUCO reminds Ohioans to call 811 before you dig

April is National Safe Digging Month

COLUMBUS, OHIO (April 1, 2019) – More than 40 percent of homeowners who plan to dig this year will put themselves and others at risk by not calling 811 before starting, according to the Common Ground Alliance. April is National Safe Digging Month and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) reminds Ohioans of the importance of digging in a safe, responsible way by calling 811 before you dig.

“Even common projects like installing a mailbox or planting a tree require calling 811 before you dig,” said PUCO Interim Chair Beth Trombold. “This one easy step can save you and your neighbors from possible service outages and serious injuries.”

Ohio law requires that anyone planning a digging project call at least 48 hours and up to 10 days (not including weekends or legal holidays) before digging. Now, homeowners can also enter dig requests online with the OHIO811 e-dig ticket system. Submitting a ticket is as easy as entering your home’s location and a valid email address online here. By simply contacting 811 at no cost, you can avoid potential utility outages, repair costs and serious or even fatal injuries.

When contacting 811, tell the operator what type of work you will be doing and your affected local utility companies will be notified about your intent to dig. In a few days, they will send a locator to mark the approximate location of your underground lines, pipes and cables, so you will know what is below and can dig safely.

Commercial excavators, utility operators, designers and developers are subject to fines and/or other penalties if underground protection laws are not followed.

To learn more, visit the Ohio Utilities Protection Service’s website at www.oups.org or call 811.
