We're now requesting applications for Street Trees

We are planning a Fall 2008 and Spring 2009 street tree planting. The form is available in several formats on our website at:

Please return completed forms by the due date: Saturday, April 19, 2008.
(Please note: If faxing your form the fax deadline is 3 PM Friday, April 18, 2008.)

Only homeowners can request that a tree be planted - you cannot request a tree on behalf of someone else. Please note that you will be notified of the price (probably around $30-$40) and whether or not you have been approved for the Spring or Fall planting as soon as we know.

We're hoping to plant up to 100 trees in the Fall and we will need lots of volunteers. We don't know when the trees will arrive and won't know the planting date until the Fall.

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who came out to help plant. We'll be adding a few more thank yous to our web site's thank you page. We had around 100 people or maybe a few more come out and help plant 72 trees today. You are all awesome.


(We have 1 missing stake pounder, one missing red and black bag with tools in it and 2 trees went missing. If you happen to spot these in your truck or car please return these to us - we borrowed the tools and will have to pay to replace them. The stake pounder is ours - brand new and we used money donated to us by folks like you to buy it . Somehow two trees went missing today - if you happen to know anything about them please contact us.)
