Beautify Your Home and Neighborhood by Planting Trees
The purpose of the Resident Tree planting Program is to encourage homeowners to plant trees. Trees improve our environment, contribute to our health and welfare, and enhance the charm and appeal of the Town.
Homeowners are eligible for up to $60 toward the purchase of a tree for their property.
Some restrictions apply:
Trees planted on public or private property must be within 30 feet of public streets or right-of-way and provide sufficient public benefit to justify the expenditure of public funds.
A Tree Impact Permit [PDF] is must be approved before a tree can be planted on any public street or Town right-of-way. A permit is not required for planting on private property.
