The Green Leaf Award is presented annually to a business and resident in Norfolk for their landscape efforts and accomplishments. For the last nine years, the City of Norfolk Tree Advisory Board has awarded the Green Leaf Award to a business and residence, that has exceptional landscaping.

The winners of both the residential and business Green Leaf Award will be chosen according to what can be seen from the street or “curb appeal”. Landscaping must also incorporate trees in some way. The previous year award recipients include Jay & Brenda Fleece at 3006 Golf View Drive and Raising Canes at 1150 South 13th Street.

Those wanting to nominate a resident for the residential Green Leaf Award or a business for the corporate Green Leaf Award can either email a picture and/or a letter of recommendation about the nominee to Sheila Schukei at or mail/drop-off to:  309 N. 5th Street, Norfolk, NE 68701.

Deadline for submitting nominations for the residential Green Leaf Award and/or the corporate Green Leaf Award is September 04, 2020. Awards will be presented to the winners at a future City Council Meeting.
