If you have recently lost a street tree, or simply lack a street tree, the front of your property may be an ideal place for a young shade tree. Please contact the Municipal Arborist, firstname.lastname@example.org. Following are some of the considerations the Arborist takes into account when selecting a species of street tree for each location:
How tall or wide will it be when fully grown? How fast does the tree grow? Is the form appropriate to the spot? Will the tree have suitable sun and moisture conditions? Is the tree flowering and does it produce fruit? Will the tree grow clear of utility wires? Is the species native to this area?
