BEXLEY, Ohio (AP) — A small, central Ohio city has been accredited as an arboretum in a nod to the special pride its residents take in its trees.

The Columbus Dispatch ( ) reports Bexley is the first U.S. city to get such accreditation from the Illinois-based Morton Register of Arboreta.

Some of the Columbus suburb's 13,000 residents had sought the designation, a label more typical for land used for cultivating trees and plants. They learned on Wednesday that their effort was successful.

Bexley met criteria such as having more than 100 types of woody plants and offering public access and educational efforts.
