The Residential Street Tree Program's purpose is to increase the tree canopy, help stabilize the environment, and enhance its residential and public streets. The program will be implemented in phases and prioritization of neighborhoods based on existing tree count data. The initial phase included the residential properties within the East Stuart community in 1A, followed by Phase 1B. Now, the CRA is accepting applications for Priority Neighborhood Areas 2, 3 and 4. The Property Owner may request for street tree on private portion of the front yard (or side yard for corner lots) or within the City’s right of way, which is typically the grass area between the street and sidewalk. The homeowner shall choose a tree species from the City’s list of Recommended Street Trees, which is included with the application packet. The deadline to submit an application is April 12, 2024 for Spring planting (April – May). Apply Now!
