From Tryon Daily Bulletin:
The N.C. Forest Service is interested in qualifying the City of Saluda as a Tree City USA destination.
The program is similar to Play City USA, which Saluda has been designated as well. Tree City USA is a recognition based program that promotes trees and maintenance of trees in the city. The designation was developed by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA forest service and the National Association of State Foresters.
