Tree Planting
Standards
All trees that are planted within the City are required to be 1.5 caliper at a height of 4.5 feet from grade.  All trees must be planted to ANSI A300 standards.  Please review those standards here.

Permits
A permit is required to plant a tree on private property or to plant a street tree without City crews. This ensures trees are planted in a location that is conducive to their long term health and growth and that they won't be placed in a location that threatens other trees or structures.  If you need to apply for a planting permit please fill out the application here and turn it into the Community Development Department located in City Hall on the second floor.
