Trees in the Public Right of Way

Trees on the Street

Planting a tree is easy, but caring for that tree requires a long-term commitment. When someone plants a tree on their property, they are more likely to remember it needs water and care. In the public right of way, trees are pretty but must be cared for as well. Residents interested in planting a tree in the public right of way can access the online neighborhood tree planting projects approval form. The purpose of this form is to ensure the right tree is planted in the right place and that the tree receives care.
