Scottsville, NY – Tree City, USA Scottsville is designated as a Tree City, USA of the National Arbor Day Foundation as of 2015. Together we work as a community for the common goal of a vibrant, healthy tree canopy. The Village of Scottsville is committed to a livable and welcoming community that supports a healthy environment for its residents. This effort includes improving and maintaining the Village tree streetscape in partnership with residents and community organizations and businesses.
The Benefit of Trees Trees planted in the Village right of ways and parks provide many benefits. Trees enhance our walkable neighborhoods, provide shade for humans and a habitat for wildlife. They enhance the visual beauty, decrease traffic noise, reduce erosion and pollution in our waterways, give off oxygen and enhance air quality.
