In 1849 the Town of Fortville was founded. For six straight years this town has been named a Tree City USA Community. To be a Tree City USA the town must establish a Tree Board or Department who will be responsible for the community's trees. The town must pass a Tree Care Ordinance, setting good policies. It must establish a budget of at least $2 per capita and must organize an Arbor Day tree even or a award ceremony to those who help plant trees. Come be apart of this Tree-Helping Community!
