TreesUpstate is starting to schedule site visits and discuss planting dates for the Fall 2019 – March 2020. Last year, North Main participated, and it would be great to take advantage of this opportunity to get more trees in the neighborhood. We need to determine interest, and if there is widespread interest, we may be able to plan multiple tree planting events. For each event, they need at least 12 residents and at least 17 trees that are within walking distance of each other (maybe 5 minutes) — the closer the better, especially for the volunteers.
The information on this page is still correct: https://www.treesupstate.org/gottrees/ and gives more information on the program.
- 15 gallon, 5′-10′ tall tree (height depends on species)
- Species selection
- Public utility marking (however, residents are responsible for marking any irrigation or private utility lines before the tree planting)
- Professional site visit from our staff to give recommendations based on available space, utilities, etc
