Green Medal Awards

Green Medals are presented to Wake Forest area residents, civic clubs, and companies that have demonstrated exceptional care and concern for the environment and/or Wake Forest's urban forest. Green Medals are awarded in the following categories:

  • Civic
    Awarded to an individual, civic club or organization which has shown outstanding service, education, tree planting or other volunteer-based work. Participation in a tree board-sponsored event is encouraged, but should not be the only example of service.

  • Corporate
    Awarded to a company or business which exhibits a pattern of commitment to the environment, or which has made a significant contribution to the urban forest through an internal education program, a self-initiated tree planting or other outreach project.

  • Program or Project
    Designed to honor a program or project which promotes good urban forestry or environmental practice, or to a development which has shown excellence in tree preservation or landscaping. Only those developments which exceed town requirements or meet them by using particularly creative methods such as innovative planting or design will be considered.

  • Community Forester
    This award is intended to honor a lifetime or career of excellence in urban forestry or leadership in environmental integrity and practice. The recipient's service should be demonstrated as having a significant impact on the community as a whole, or on future generations of Wake Foresters.
