Camden is proud to be a Tree City USA for over 25 years! Trees help to form our city-wide forest, which is the combination of all vegetation (trees, shrubs and turfgrass) within our community. Our parks and green spaces allow citizens and visitors to form connections with nature. Our community forest provides shade, energy conservation, stormwater management, air pollution filtration, bird and wildlife habitat, aesthetics and much more!
