Discounted Tree Sale - CLOSED

If you thought about buying a discounted tree through our sale but didn’t make a purchase, tell us what was missing! Your feedback will inform future tree programs, and answering four short questions will get you a discount coupon for trees.

Planting Street Trees

What's a street tree? A street tree is planted in the public right-of-way, usually in the planting strip (space between sidewalk and road) or in the space approximately 10 feet from the curb or roadside, in the absence of sidewalks. To make sure street trees are planted in locations where they will not interfere with underground sewer, water, and gas lines or overhead power lines, residents must receive permission from their local jurisdiction. PCD will receive permission on your behalf when you participate in this program. Be sure to indicate you are planting street trees on your application.
