With the start of a new year comes a new opportunity for you to add a parkway tree in front of your property. The City’s Forestry Division is now accepting applications for the 2023 Shared Cost Parkway Tree Planting Program. As we continue seeking ways to encourage sustainable actions in our community, this year’s program has been significantly expanded to provide shared-cost funding for up to 200 new trees on a first-come, first-served basis.
Open now through March 1, 2023, this program allows property owners to pay $95 per tree to have City crews plant a new tree in the parkway adjacent to their property. Property owners can select from up to 12 species. The City’s Forestry Division will plant the trees in the spring or fall depending on the species or availability.
To participate, submit an application to the City’s Forestry Division. More information is available in the application packet. Applications will be accepted through March 1 or once the program maximum is reached.
