Boulevard Shade Tree Planting Program
Information on Planting Procedures
Public Improvement Projects - Shade trees are planted as part of all major public improvement projects where sidewalk and curb are in place. Each residence within a project area is eligible for up to two boulevard trees (number of trees placed will be determined by a site evaluation). City crews plant the trees and no assessment is made for the new plantings.

Rebate Program - A resident who wants to plant trees on the boulevard may apply to participate in our rebate program. The city offers a $60.00 rebate for each tree planted. Certain restrictions apply, such as: only two trees can be rebated per parcel per year, curbs must be in place, trees planted must meet city specifications and there must be adequate space.

**An applicant may apply for a maximum of two trees per parcel per year, a maximum of two parcels per year.
