Boulevard Tree Planting

Property owners may plant street trees by obtaining a Permit to Plant Trees on Public Street Right-of-Way from the Forestry Division. Permits are free of charge.

A forestry staff member will conduct an on-site inspection to determine where the trees can be placed, recommend species that are best suited for each site, and issue the permit. In most cases it is not necessary for the homeowner to be present. Placement of trees in the boulevard area must accommodate proper spacing between trees and minimum distances from: intersections, fire hydrants, street lights, overhead wires, driveways, mailboxes, street lights, and water service lines.

Call the Forestry Division at 701-355-1700 or fill out the Boulevard Tree Planting Permit Request
