The City of Conway Tree Board was created by the City Council (O-06-26) to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of Conway, to protect the health and safety of the residents of Conway, and to protect the environment by providing the development of a Community Forest Management Plan for the regulation of the planting, maintenance, removal, and protection of trees on public property within the City of Conway.

In March 2007, The National Arbor Day Foundation named Conway a Tree City USA community to honor its commitment to community forestry. It was the first year Conway has received this national recognition.
