Native Canopy & Street Tree Plantings -- The Town is finalizing its spring tree planting list. If you have a spot in your yard suitable for a canopy tree, you might want to take advantage of the Town’s Native Canopy Tree Planting program. Under this program, the Town will purchase and install a canopy tree on your property at no cost to you. Residents are responsible for the long-term care of the tree once installed. You also may request to have a tree planted along the street in front of your home. The Town prefers to plant canopy trees when possible. Once the trees are planted, the Town will care for the trees for the first year by ensuring that they are watered. If you would like to request a tree, please visit the Town website.
