2011 Tree Planting Program

The City's Tree Planting Program is open to all residential (owner occupied and income property) and commercial properties in the City. Trees are selected by the City that are considered suitable for street tree planting, are resistant to insects and disease, are a sufficient size, have pleasing coloration, etc.
 
A City-selected contractor performs the work. All plantings must occur in the City's right of way which is generally the area between the sidewalk and the curb. Preference is given to properties that have never received a tree through the City's program.
 
All funds for the City's Tree Planting Program have been committed for 2011.
