Native Canopy Tree Planting Program Application

  1. Each year the town offers a limited number of native canopy trees to be planted on private property on a first-come, first-served basis. The town will plant a tree only if the town arborist determines that there is an appropriate location on your property.

  2. Species

    The following species are available through the program. Please indicate if you have a preference. If you do not have a preference, or would like more information, the Town Arborist will contact you to discuss.

  3. Red Oak, Willow Oak, Swamp White Oak, and Blackgum trees may only be planted in the spring. Red Maple and Sugar Maple trees may be planted in the spring or fall.

    Prior to the planting of any tree, the town will schedule a site visit for you to discuss tree species and location with the town arborist. If the arborist determines that the property has a suitable location for a tree, the town will schedule the tree planting. Prior to planting, the exact location will be marked by a flag, and you will receive a letter confirming the tree species.
