Variety and Types of Trees
The owner may offer preference on the type & number of trees they want
planted, but the final decision lies with the Parks Bureau.
The owner of the property is the only one who can request
will plant a tree on occupied rental property only.
We will not plant a tree on vacant property, or homes for sale.
Maintenance of Tree
Citizens needs to be aware, once planted, they are responsible for
a) Water tree according to street tree pamphlet
b) Fertilize according to pamphlet
c) Pruning at least once a year depending on variety
d) If trees are staked, leave staked for 1 year;
remove before it girdles tree
e) Maintain mulch around the trees (2-3 ft.
diameter). The mulch helps hold water in, weeds down and help prevents weed
eater & mower damage.
Trees that die due to owner neglect will not be replaced for one year. It is
the owner's responsibility to call us when tree is stressed, or dying. The
citizen then must call one year later for tree replacement. We will not replant
a tree that dies due to neglect at rental property.
