KDB has been responsible for Denton’s designation as a Tree City USA for 26 years. Tree City communities are committed to preserving, planting, and caring for trees. In this photo, Denton Mayor Bob Castleberry in 1991 is shown speaking on the occasion of Denton’s annual Tree City USA re-certification. Since then, KDB has partnered with the City of Denton to make great strides for trees through plantings, giveaways, and preservation.
