Tree Planting Program

Tree Selection Process

The Public Works Department plants trees annually in November and April. The application deadline for November planting is September 30 and February 28 for April planting. Tree plantings are located between the curb and sidewalk in front of residences and businesses. There is no charge for planting.

You can order a tree by filling out this online form: tree planting form

The Public Works department must inspect the site to assess whether or not a tree can be planted.
The species of the tree will be selected by the Public Works Department based on the following criteria:
  • Available space for the tree
  • Presence of overhead utilities
  • Need to maintain the diversity of the City's forestry stock
