Bristol celebrated Arbor Day 2016 on April 29th by planting a flowering pear tree outside the entrance of the fire department. The tree is the beginning of a project funded by the Bristol Volunteer Firemen’s Association titled “Bristol Fire Department: Our Past, Present and Future.” The project will consist of a brick walkway built around the tree that will commemorate department members past and present. The area will also display Bristol Fire Department’s bell from 1899. For more information please call Chief John Niederer at 262-857-2711.
This is the fourth year the village has been designated a Tree City USA.
Bristol received its official Tree City USA flag and plaque at the Village Board meeting on April 22, 2013. The ceremony was conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Kim Sebastian of the DNR said Bristol will be one of about 180 communities in Wisconsin to earn the designation this year. That is the second highest number of Tree Cities in the country, trailing only California.
Bristol had to meet four requirements to earn the designation:
- Establish a tree department to look over village trees.
- Pass a tree ordinance.
- Host an Arbor Day ceremony and pass an Arbor Day proclamation.
- Establish a tree budget.
Earning this status may help the Village get grants for tree-related projects in the future.
